Recover Both Domain Controllers

Veeam Logoby serverman73 » Sun Dec 06, 2015 11:59 am

If my entire infrastructure is virtual (DC's / Veeam / other servers). How can I recover my DC's in event of a failure? If the esx host died, Veeam is currently configured to use the Domain\Administrator account to backup the DC's. If I had to rebuild my Veeam server and then restore the DC's how would I do so since the Domain\Administrator account at that point does not exist.

Thanks

You would change that account to the new one in the backup job settings.

Gostev,

Thanks for your reply....but maybe I am missing something. If I backed these VM's up utilizing a domain admin account, and they are the only domain controllers, how would I restore them using a domain admin account, because in this case the domain would be non-existent until I restored them?

Or do I not need a domain admin account to restore them?

Right, you do not need admin account to restore DC. However, you'll need to perform authoritative SYSVOL restore for one of the DCs.
