SBS 2003 Server Reload with NTBackup restore problem
Posted on 2010-09-02
In the process of running a CHKDSK /R the server suffered major problems. Over 1/2 of the needed services fail on reboot and the problem seems too difficult to resolve the part that became corrupted.
Problem is restoring using a fully system state backup using NTBackup. I have the data backed up using Symantec Backup Exec. It is crazy that this happended when installing Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 and was forced to run the CHKSDK. I have tested the drives and again ram a CHKDSK to find no dirrect problem with the drive.
I have broken the mirror to preserve a backup easily on the system. I tried to restore in Windows when booted, but the application NTBackup did not open mostly because of the of the failed services.
I believe that the next step is to reload the server from scrtach. Then use the NTBackup to restore the state. Then comes the data. I do not know about the detail or if this is correct.
I am going crazy because the office is down right now.
I am not sure on the process order.
