Backup and Restore Domain Controller using Symantec System recovery
Posted on 2011-02-27
I'm using Symantec System Recovery 10 to Backup and Restore a Domain Controller to a new server (2003). I also have another domain controller in my network.I had not problem doing the backup and the recovery and now I have a new server with the same name. This server was also my DNS server. I was trying to introduce this server to my network and I disconected the old server and gave the same ip address to the new server. When I ping the new server, I did not get any response either by ip address or the server name.
I disconnected the new server and plug back the old server and everything is working fine.
I don't know if I'm missing something and I should have demoted the original server before creating the image and then remove the server from the domain.
