Quick Tips: Active Directory restore
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.
