I have seen some other posts on this forum regarding AD restores but I seem to be going nowhere rapidly.
The jobs are setup to be application aware etc.
The AD server is backed up over CloudConnect and I have asked our provider to restore the server for DR testing.
I boot the server and login using DSRM and then reboot normally.
However I have no DNS and no AD.
At first I thought it was because it was a member AD server (no FSMO roles) (2012R2) but seizing didn't work.
So I removed that server and backed up the server hosting all the FSMO roles (2008R2).
Had it restored again and essentially the same result.
What am I missing here? Google isn't been that helpful
I thought Veeam was all about availability but if you can't even stand up your AD, there's not much point bothering with your other servers....
