I am in the process of restoring a domain controller from a backup tape and I have a problem.

I select the system state, shadow components, C and D drive, but i am unsure as to what credientials to use as when I test the account i wish to use on the resource credentials screen I always get access denied messages.

The server to be restored is a windows 2003 Server.

Currently it is is DSRM mode and has the same IP address, Server name but not currently a member of the domain and juist in a work group.

The Firewall is currently disabled.

When I check the Agent from the backup server the backup server says the agent is installed correctly.

I am restoring using Symantec backup exec 2010 from a remote server with the tape drive,

The backup exec remote agent services are running onthe remote machine.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
