right now I'm in real trouble. This is the first time that something like that happened to me.
OK. What happened:
- AD Domain 2003/2008 mixed mode with Exchange 2007
- One 2003 DC with all FSME-roles and the GC
- One 2008 DC
Both servers ran on a VMWare-System.
The storage where the servers were hosted should change (together with some other Servers)
During the move from one storage to the other the 2003-Server-VM-Files got completely corrupted, don't ask why when how - it just happened :(((((. These files are definitely lost!!!!
The 2003 DC was backuped with ntbackup but according to Murphie's law without system state :(((((((. There someone didn't do his job proberly - but that will be an issue somewhere else!
Now I only have the 2008 DC but with no FSME-roles and no global catalog.
I hope you have any ideas how to get out of this trouble????? Is there a way to get the 2008 working with the complete AD????
Thanks a lot in advance for any hints that get me back on the road :)!
