About a manual disaster recovery of a local Windows computer (includes non-authoritative and authoritative restore of Active Directory for a domain controller)

This procedure restores your computer's operating system to a pre-disaster state. It also restores your data files, except for those that are protected by one of the Backup Exec database agents, such as the Exchange Agent or SQL Agent. If any of your data is protected by Backup Exec agents, refer to the section on restoring the data protected by the agent before beginning disaster recovery.

If your system is protected by Backup Exec 2010 Intelligent Disaster Recovery (IDR), you should use IDR for disaster recovery.

See About the Intelligent Disaster Recovery Option.

The procedure described in the following section allows you to manually recover a computer not protected by IDR.

A media drive must be attached to the computer that is being recovered.

You will also need the following items:

  • A current full backup of the computer to be recovered and any subsequent incremental/differential backups.

  • The Windows installation media.

  • The Backup Exec installation media.

Note:

If you recover a Windows computer that has BitLocker encryption enabled, you must re-enable BitLocker encryption following the restore.

See Microsoft's documentation for more information on BitLocker drive encryption.
