I have a domain with 2 DCs, a 2003 SBS and a 2000 server. I made an ASR backup, and restored it onto another, test system. The network cables are unplugged; the test system cannnot talk to anyone. I am getting a ton of errors with exchange. The first error I get is:

Userenv 1006: Windows cannot bind to xxx domain (Local Error). Group Policy processing aborted.

Is this problem the result  of  the inability to replicate to the other DC?

Is there a way to correct this problem without contacting the other DC? (In case I need to recover, and the other DC is gone)

Please note that this is only testing (I dont want to try stuff that may cause real problems), my network is working correctly.

Hello Mike ,
That is common error as there is no network connected. only way to correct is to connect to the network when needed.

Does the restored server need to communicate to the other dc, or does it just need to communicate to the LAN?

Set up a test version of the  2000 DC and started it. Then rebooted the SBS 2003 server. The problems seemed to go away. There is an interesting message:

MSExchangeDSAccess  ID 2081: Process WMIPRVSE.EXE ... will use ...

Domain Controllers:
2000 Server

Global Catalogs:
The Configuration Domain Controller is set to [2000 Server]

It looks like these roles were not assigned to the SBS 2003 server after the restore. Is there any way to check which roles are assigned to which machine and change them?

I have both DC's over in the test area and I'm back to the original problem. It appears my shares SYSVOL and NETLOGON are not there.  What would you recommend? I can make any needed backup on the production system. My goal it to make the test system work.
