Active directory user accounts backup and restore on a different hardware RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am really in trouble with my Exchange server. I have an IBM 3650 M3 server with Windows Server 2008 R2 x64. I have installed

    active directory and microsoft exchange server 2010 on it. I have taken a full system backup using Windows server backup. Now the

    problem is I cannot restore the same environment on a different hardware. I have done authoritative system restore on a HP Pavilion

    but after restarting it is giving blue screen error. No way I can get back to the system.

    If full system restore is not possible on a different hardware then please help to accomplish at least two things..

    1. I want all the active directory users with all OUs to be restored on a differnt system with same or different domain name.
    2. Restore the mail boxes on the exchange server and sychronize between AD and the respective mailboxes.

    By doing this I can bring back my exchange server. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks and regards,
