Server 2003 crashed. It was the domain controller in a small office environment and was also running Exchange 2003. NTBackup was running two backups. 1 backing up the whole server and the other just the exchange store.

Not having done this before I could do with some guidance as to steps.

I have created a new 2003 Virtual Machine using the same install and patched it to the same level.

So is it simply a matter of running restore or do I need to set it up as a DC and install Exchange first?
