      Hi all,

      How can I recover an Active Directory database and files from a crashed OS Windows Server 2016 to a new server of the same OS.

      Kindly assist!
      Thanks!

      Do you have a backup of the Active Directory database?

      That is why having more than one DC is recommended. If you have another DC, just add the new server as an ADC and let it replicate from the healthy DC. If you have a system state backup, you could use that to restore your AD. If you have neither, you could try directory service restore mode (DSRM) and NTDSUtil but it will be lot more complicated.
