Restore user accounts on Win2K Server..

By ken.schuring ·
How can I restore my user accounts to my Win2K server after I have had to re-install the O/S? I have a good tape backup and ERD disk. I don't have many users, but would like to be able to restore the user and group data.
Thanks, Ken

Restore user accounts on Win2K Server..

Normal procedure for a restore is as follows.

You need to have a backup of your system which must include the system partition (c:?)

Install the operating system which must be the same as before. Install the backup device drivers and the backup software.

Recover from backup the system partition. The system partition should contain all the information regarding the users accounts.

The ERD disk does not contain any information regarding user accounts.

If you are restoring active directory you must start your server in Directory Services restore mode after you have completed the steps above. You can get to this choice by pressing f8 during boot up.
