I am preparing for the exam, but would like to clarify how ntbackup restores \nactive directory when restoring to an alternate location. All the literature \n- including the official MS Training Kit - I've found states that "when \nrestoring to an alternate location the AD db, COm + files and certificates db \nare not restored." However, I have performed this task in Windows 2003 R2 \nserver and my tests show that ALL FILES- were restored to the alternate \nlocation including ntds.dit file.\n Is this true only for some versions of Windows server? I appreciate yout \ntime and input. Thank you.
