Quick Tips: Active Directory restore

A user submitted tip on how hardware can affect the Active Directory restore process.

Identical hardware is very important to enable a successful AD restore. Whether you are part of a large or small organization, you should have a couple, if not more, spare servers that can be used to restore Active Directory Services.

A system state restore from different hardware causes AD not to start on bootup. Products with Intelligent Disaster Recovery also face a similar issue if the target hardware is not the same.
