Is it possible to restore Windows 2000 Active Directory forest and child domains to different
hardware than it was originally installed on? We have conflicting advice after spending time
working on this following many articles and fixes.
Since Active Directory is concerned primarily with authentication data, such data SHOULD be able to be restored to non-like hardware. However, since Microsoft often uses things like the registry and Active Directory for things other than what you THINK they're using them for, your mileage may vary.
