  • Recovering AD backup to new server

    Hi,

    I have a question to you all..

    Here is the scenario . I have a domain with 2 domain cntlrs. AD1.test.com and AD2.test.com. FSMO roles- schema master and doamin naming master roles are assigned to AD1. other 3 roles to AD2.

    The AD1 server's OS got crashed(which cannot be recoverable).
    I am not able to transfer the 2 roles since the box goes offline.
    I have a full backup of AD1. How can I recover the backup to a new server.
    What all are the steps I have to perform for restoring the backup to new server.

    Your replies are really appreciated..

    Thanks

    Have you already trying to use google for this?
    Also it might depend on the backup software you have.

    Further, there is always a possibility to seize the roles....

      I wouldn't bother restoring from backup.

      Create a new server and do a metadata cleanup in AD for the old one. Sieze the roles and job done.

      All of this info can be found on the main site.

        Just so I can increase my post count, the Main Site is www.petri.com and search for seizing server 2003 roles.

        Actually I put this post in as I often forget about the main site due to me being so Forum orientated and I guess others may also forget about the plethera of information on the main site too.
