There is actually two things that need to be done as a backup solution to
be considered a "valid" restore:
(a) restore the system state correctly
(b) reset the database instance's invocationID.
The second step is just to make sure that replication kicks in and other
DCs notice that a restore of one of the systems has taken place. That's
all. I am not sure if Tivoli does that but would be surprised if it
did not. Most of the major backup/restore solutions do that. It does not
necessarily have to be NTBackup.
Yeah, you can do that. You'll probably have to adjust DNS/IP data if the
box gets the same name but a different IP and stuff like that but for
plain AD, this should be okay.
