Domain Controllers

Post by Guest » Thu Aug 30, 2012 5:48 am

Hi all,

I have been looking at the drive image software and it looks great! I am thinking of getting it for imaging our Servers and some of these servers are Domain Controllers and I wondered how it worked with DC's on a restore. Is it a case of restoring the image and then restoring a system state off-line for a good image restore?

Many thanks,
Simon

As far as I know, some use R-Drive Image for domain controller backup/restore. But I don't know much about the details.
An do remember: R-Drive Image has a time-limited full-functioning demo mode, so you may try it before buy.

I couldn't get it to complete a restore in regular Windows, don't think I would trust this for a DC. If it doesn't restore you are screwed. Support on this forum seems very spotty as well--I started a thread about a restore issue and got no reply at all. Going to try calling in Monday, not holding my breath though.

What was the problem with restoring the regular Windows?

The problem was explained in a thread that had zero replies.
