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.

Install SBS with the same domain name as if its a new loadup, restore the data and exchange, THEN do the system state restore.
