i have a problem in windows 2000 backup and restore ...... it is as follows:
- i have one DC on my network ....
- i made "system state backup" to backup AD and related files...
- i tried to restore that backup on blank (clean ... no DC on it) win2000 server machine using authoritative restore ........
- all OK .... but .... some programs shortcuts are missing from Administrative Tools menu ......... also ......... i can not edit the group policy and i recieved message saying "your PDC is not available" .........
