Server 2011 SBS - Operating System Reload / Active Directory Question
Posted on 2014-04-11
I have a Windows 2011 SBS server that had a hard drive go out in a RAID array which was causing random reboots and sometimes hard lockups. The OS is still functional but severely corrupted. After many attempts to repair I have decided to reload the operating system. Active Directory and the file sharing are still functional for the users currently.
I am familiar with the reload of the OS, but I would like to be able to restore Active Directory and the domain settings so that when I take the server back from the reload that I won't have to go around and do anything to the workstations. Any tips on how to make this happen? I have a good backup of the Windows system state with Mozy, but can make additional backups if needed with Windows backup or whatever. Just not sure how to restore everything after the OS is reloaded. Thanks for your help!
