AD System State Recovery

Dear All

Is there any chance of restoring Active Directory from System State on another Server with different Hardware, and if I have Exchange Server on the same recovered Server, does that means more complexity, or it's possible?
 
Thanks

only after restoring the active directory

The best way to do this is to build a new server with the same name, same domain name etc.

Then do an Active Directory Restore Mode recovery.  Once you have Recovered active directory start a fresh installation of exchange and use the: setup /disasterrecovery switch an this will recover the exchange details from Active Directory.

You can then restore your exchange database.
