I am not able to connect to my reserve NetWare 4.11 server from my production NetWare 4.11 server ever since there was a power failure last week.
When I run the "Unattended Full Repair" in DSREPAIR on the reserve server (fs1). it showed:
opening temporary file
generating schema cache
repair process aborted
Automated Repair Mode cannot continue since the local database is not open
This same error msg occurred even though I have disconnected the UTP cable from the fs1 server, meaning this server is running standalone.
The server console showed:
Directory Services: Could not open local database, it is inconsistent. Try to correct the error with DSREPAIR.NLM
As I could not map to this fs1 server from the fs production server, how can I extract the server error logs to a diskette ?
Is there a way to correct the problem without destroying any data on this fs1 server ? What about the trustees ?
Would appreciate detailed steps to resolve the above issues
