Deleted Admin Account SBS 2008

I have a client who called me to day and advised that he has somehow deleted the admin account on his sbs server.

He mentioned that he managed to accidently delete the account via the exchange management console. Firstly is this possible as I would have thought it would have been much more difficult than that.

I connected remotely and there is no sign of the account in active directory, I did think about simply recreating the admin account but I am sure it’s not as simple as that due to the dependencies/permissions set through the system.

I have done some research on directory service restore mode and wanted to know your thoughts if I will be able to restore the admin account without issue.

The client is running sbs backup & backup exec full system backup every night.

You could either recover it from the deleted container by using ldp.exe or you could do a restore of c drive and system state from the latest backup since its the only dc; it needn't be a authoritative restore just restore system state and you should be fine. You could even restore a single user provided you've active directory recovery agent license installed for Backupexec.
