How to perform a bare metal recovery

Starfish
Level 2

I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to perform a bare metal recovery with the system that a client has in place. They are currently using backup exec 2010 R3 to backup a 2003 domain controller. That domain controller crashed. They have spun up a VM to restore active directory to - unfortunately nobody has the active directory restore password. As a last ditch attempt to get this domain controller back online, we were considering performing a bare metal restore to the VM. HOwever, I am not really familiar on the exact process and what is required. They were were backing up the entire domain controller to a tape drive. What do I need to look for to see if it is even possible to perform a bare metal restore of this server? Is there a KB article that outlines exactly how to perform a BMR through BEX? Thank you.
