Restoring MDT with DFS-R


  • Our MDT server took a "hit" and all information was lost, including backup. We were using DFS-R to replicate MDT data at our nine other sites. Can we use the data that is stored on one of our other servers to make our main server fully functional again. This would reduce the amount of time rather then from starting from scratch. We are running Server 2012 R2. Just looking for some guidance here. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Yes, you can reinstall the ADK + MDT software on your original server and then import the Deployment Share(s) that you had replicated using DFS-R. Once imported, just update them (to generate new boot images) and you should be good to go.
