Hi, Richard.  Generally what we do is:

Load new system with W2K Server, service packs, and TSM client.  Set hostname 
to same name as old system.

Restore all drives and then the system object.  Take care to NOT reboot before 
everything is restored.


Now - if you are restoring to the same hardware configuration, everything 
should be OK at this point.  If you have not used the same - and I mean the 
exact same - hardware, boot from the W2K install CD.  At the first prompt, tell 
setup that you want to install, not repair.  Then setup will detect that 
Windows is installed on the hard drive and at the second prompt you tell it 
that you want to repair.  Then setup will go through and detect all the 
hardware and reload the files in system32.  After you reboot things should be 

Your mileage may vary - this is generally what we do at disaster-recovery 
exercises and it works well.

I'm running TSM 5.2.2 on Aix and I have a client that is a Win2k server
which we use as a print server. I tried a test restore by just building a
win2k server and loading TSM client 5.2 on it and restoring from a backup
set. I did a backup of the original print server first including system
objects before I tried restoring to the test server. They both are the same
hardware but when the restore complete I rebooted the server and now the
keyboard and mouse won't work.

Basically, does anyone have a good method of restoring a Win2k os. I know
that an os restore is possible with win2003 and xp but what about win2k.
The documentation seems to be very simple on this subject.
