Dear all,
I have taken backup for my dc by taking system state with ntbackup.
Now I want check this backup is working or not by restoring in some other pc. (test pc)
My question is, Is the test pc should be same source pc, if it should be same in which aspects it should be same. Like hardware, test pc name, patch level, and so on,
And when can I restore the backup, I mean after installation of OS, or do I need to run dcpromo also?
