  Strange, strange senario. This is a SBS 2003 Server that I backup nightly using Acronis Echo Server. Full images each night. As a result I don't worry too much about making System State backups because they are full images and I can restore the whole server. I have done it many times. Anyway ... I dedided to to a test restore of this particular server the other day to a spare server I have here at the office. Everything went fine but the server booted with a NTDS error 0xC0002E1 error. Even when booting to Directory Services Repair Mide I get Jet -501 errors.

   The original server is still up and running and works fine. It has even been rebooted several times with no problems but this lind of scares me. I cannot recover the directory services on this restored server. Just for grins I went and made a System State backup of the running server and I guess the question is... fine I have a current System State backup with WIndows Backup. So how do I restore it?
