  • Restore Domain Controller 2003

    Hello

    Our Domain Controller Crashed, I built a new server with the same name, service pack and IE. I reboot the system into Directoy services, I did a restore of the system state to overwrite the system, then I rebooted the system, this seem to find the domain and user name when logging on. When i log onto to the system I see from the server wizard DCHP, DNS and active directory active. What I don't see is any information and active directory users and sites, is their a setting I need to change? I was expecting to see what I could see last night?

    regards

      Is this the only DC?

        Hello

        I Have two DC I tranfer the the roles to a new dc. But now I need to know for my own mind how to do this. I have set up test network with a server and PC but on a different subnet

        I thought when I restore thesystem state on the dc I should be able to

        NTDSUTIL
        roles
        connection
        connect to server dc
        q
        Then seize the roles

        WHen I try this I get dsbind 0x6ba RPC server unavalible. Techcramel mentioned did you do authoritative or non-authoritative restore Where's that

        Regards

          If you have another DC, IMHO don't bother with restores, just create a new DC and let replication take its course

          For information about restores, look on the main site: http://www.petri.com/restore-windows...-directory.htm

              an "authoritative" restore means, when you restore the DC, the information you put into the database will be authoritative.
              For isntance, if you do an authoritative restore on a database that's a month old, it will make that information authoritive, so any new users, won't exist for instance

              if you do a non-authoritative restore, it will load the data from the backup, but it won't overwrite anything newer.

                Hi,

                Great answer
                I did an Authortative Restore of the database, I get an domain.ldf files and a dc.local-configuration.ldf Files, after the restore
                When I reboot the server I can't see AD. I get an Nameing error
                I think our AD is corrupt

                regards
