Non-Authoritative Restoration for a VM Domain Controller
Posted on 2012-03-21
We had one of our 2003 Child Domain Controllers go down for a week. This DC is "Primary" (holds the three roles) for the Child Domain. I would like someone to make me feel better in how I would go about restoring this DC. Which one should I do
1. Restore my VM Backup of this DC, then do a Non-Authoritative Restoration. With this, I would not do any NTBACKUP Restore, cause of VM being before it went down.
2. Seize the Roles on another Child DC and then Recreate a New Child DC and Seize the Roles Back.
Please direct me, also if you have comments or concerns.
