  • Restoring AD from a 2k3 sp2 DC to a 2k3 sp1 server.

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some words of wisdom as I'm a noob being thrown in at the deep end !
    I have an odd situation whereby I have a system state backup from a SP2 DC that I need to restore to a SP1 machine. Is this possible as the AD was created on a later service packed DC. any help is appreciated.

    IIRC the SP has nothing to do with the AD version, so you should be OK there
    Why not SP the box, then do the system state restore

      I concur with Ossian. Best Practice when restoring system state is to ensure your server is patched to the same level as close as possible to the server the system state was originally from.
