SBS 2003 Bare Metal Restore from Symantec Backup
Posted on 2011-09-27
My Windows SBS 2003 server has failed. I installed new disks and installed the O/S, and have a Symantec backup exec backup of system state, shared drives & exchange.
I have never installed SBS before. How do I do a bare metal restore of SBS 2003? Should I put the server in a workgroup, install Symantec BE then restore system state? Will this re-create active directory, make the server the DC, activate DNS and DHCP etc?
How do I get exchange up and running. Do I configure Exchange first then restore the mailboxes from tape?
Any help would be very much appreciated.
