I need to do a reload of an SBS 2003 system because of a potential virus and Exchange corruption. I do not have a full SBS 2003 (built-in backup) backup to do a recovery from pre-virus incident.
I am going to reload the OS from scratch and rebuild the shares/exchange/etc. My question is, can I use a system state Backup to recover the Active Directory stuff before I do the 'Continue Setup' option and then load Exchange?
Obviously i want to do this to avoid having to rejoin all the clients to a new domain/etc. Or is starting from scratch my only real option?
I have a temp server as well that could be used for a pseudo swing if it would save any time.
