      You can't. the DIT is tight to the server it is installed on and can not be used to rebuild the DC or recover from disaster. You need a full System State backup for that.

        hi all

        Migueg - what is the purpose??

        it seems to be a vm issue
        when i try to restore my dc on vm
        it doesnt restore the system state correctly.
        and the i couldnot log on with error of missing ad db.

        so i thought fixing manually the ad bd.
        it seems to be a vm issue, beacuse the same
        procedure on a regular pc, with the same backup was succeess.

        so i open a thread in vm forum

        thanks
