hey all ,
I started writing recovery solution for some of our important systems like what happens if hard disk fails on an important system or there is fire that destroy the server such as: Active Directory (on win 2003) and Exchange 2007 on win 2008 r2
Where both of them has agent of Symantec backup 2010
Regarding Active Directory up until now I have been backing up
2. \\AD\Utility Partition\
3. \\AD\\Shadow Copy Components\
If I install windows 2003 from scratch and then restore all items with the above list will it be sufficient? Or should I run DCpromo from start and then run it..
Regarding Exchange 2007 server (that on VM)
4. First storage group / second storage group
5. Shadow copy components
6. System state
A. Same question as before is it sufficient to only restore from backup after installing
windows 2008 R2 with the same name or I need to install exchange and then restore
B. Second question if I backup the Exchange folder it self... Will it help?
C. if i copy the VM and put it aside will i be able to use it later when i will need to restore
