  • Tutorial on AD restore

    Well, I have been looking for this for sometime now but unfortunately not getting much info. anywhere....really looking for a step by step guide sorta thing to solve the problem...surprised to see that i cant find much.


    This is a test environment.

    What I have is:
    A windows 2003 Std Server. running AD on it. It is the only DC that I have...I have taken a recent normal backup of system state only.

    What has gone wrong:
    now lets suppose my ad is completely gone but i have the normal backup with me.

    What i want to achieve:
    No brainer now but yuh i want to restore my AD back using the same system state backup.

    Question:
    So bottom line how do i go about restoring AD using ntbackup system state normal backup when there is not other DC or ADC available.

    Some decent step by step guide is what I am looking for.

    Cheer!

      Okay so from what i get is that if I want to restore only some partial data set on an already running DC then i can use Auth and Non-Auth restore methods.


      But if for some reason all my DC are gone and I have rebuild my Domain from scratch I can do it with primary restore.


      Unfort. I cant find primary restore methods anywhere...any tips on that be very very nice.

        I would recommended taking a backup using Acronis, which will allow you to do bare-metal restore. Restore this image onto another VM or physical server. I have done this with multi site AD.
