We're in a position where a migration from sbs 2003-2008 went horribly wrong and we may need to do a full restore on the source server. The new sbs 2008 already has AD and is a DC but that's it. Apparently it isn't the catalog server or anything yet.

Is it really as simple as just doing a full restore on the source server and deleting the new sbs 2008? Or will there be prep work since the servers went through a failed migration? All of this is VM.

If the backup of the source server was before the migration was started, simply restore and delete the VM. if the backup was from before you ran the migration prep tool, you will need to rerun it.
