Authoriative Restore of Active directory using Backup Exec 2010
Posted on 2010-08-12
I have two Domain controllers in a test environment, Windows 2003 server SP 2, 32 bit.
I have backed up the system state of DC1 and DC2 respectively.
Now I want to perform an authoritative restore of DC1 (restore all AD to a previous state).
I am not certain of the steps required to do so.
I have rebooted DC1 in DSRM mode and resored with the following options:
Mark this server as the primary arbitrator for replication when restoring folders managed by File replication service or when restoring Sysvol in System State
Since I am restoring the complete system state, are the steps listed above the correct ones for Authoritatuve restore of AD to DC1?
Could someone help guide me?
