If I do a repair the windows small business server 2011 standard repair console, will I loose the user's and computer's that are currently setup on the server ?


  • Hi,

    Based on your description, I understand you want to repair SBS 2011 console (please refer to the TechNet article: Repair the Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard Console). However, worry about losing users and groups that be created by Windows SBS Console. As far as I know, those will not lose.

    Since, when you create users and groups via SBS console, those are added to Activity Directory. The SBS console is a GUI component, which makes it easy to configure and manage your Windows SBS 2011 Standard network. When you repair the SBS console, this component will be affected.

    In view of your concerns, please back up before operation. It will help us to avoid some unexpected issue.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,

    Justin Gu
