Doing a full recovery of a crashed HD on a Windows 2003 SBS server.

Using this guide http://support.veritas.com/docs/236240. with success, but after inventorying and cataloging the media from a DELL RD1000 USB Powervault I can see the data folders and drive letters they are supposed to be on, but I see no options for system state and active directory and the like, to restore.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

It was full, but I have multiple backups spanning months back and I see no option for System State etc. on any of them when using the Restore Wizard or the normal Restore.

Using the restore of an sbs backup will do a full restore including systemstate.
You do need to have the same config (volumes) setup on the drive you restoring to.
Hope that helps,
Olaf

This was only backed up using Backup Exec 11d. Just trying to figure out why system state and active directory and such are not showing up as items to restore from cataloged backup.
