Restoring a Machine in a Domain
Posted on 2012-03-29
2008 Domain with bunch of servers and two domain controllers.
We backup all our VHD's using Acronis (full VHD backup nightly)
I was just wondering, if one of our member servers fail (Terminal Services, File Server, etc.) but not domain controllers how would one restore the machine?
Is it as simple as removing the computer account
Restoring the VM to the correct Parent Virtual Server
And when the machine boots up all is ok to go?
Or do we need to keep the computer account in AD and then reboot it?
For that matter is the above in the correct procedure?
