I have 2 servers that are running white box SBS 2008. The OS disks say OEM. I am trying to figure out a disaster recovery plan. Due to the age of the hardware most components including the MOBO are discontinued. By using an OEM license there are only a certain amount of system hardware items that can change without invalidating the license.
If the server were to catastrophically fail, I need to have a data recovery plan. Things like SharePoint and Exchange are not an issue. How do I back up Active Directory and GPO’s so a rebuild would keep these things available. I don’t even know where they are located on a server and if there is a way to recover ADUC and GPO’s to a different version of server.
What additional backups do I need to do to get the safety level my clients would want for recovery? How do I backup these items?
