My primary AD server (and DNS) is a physical machine (Server 2008R2), while my secondary AD server (and secondary DNS) is a hyper-v virtual machine.
My primary server I back up each day, but the secondary vm is backed up as a hyper-v image from 3 months ago.
I lost the virtual secondary server (theft of the host server), and would like to restore (import) the old hyper-v image on the new host server.
If I import the old hyper-v image of the secondary server onto the new host hyper-v server, will it run okay? Or will the new host hardware be a problem for the virtual AD server? I have already imported another non Active Directory vm image to the new host hardware, so I know the hardware is compatible, just I am unsure about AD.
Also, I assume the secondary server, once connected will automatically synchronise with the primary server?
