Scenario: I will log on to a Win2K server, SP2, (as the domain admin) running Exchange 2K. I will start MMC (running Active Directort Users & Computers -ADU&C) and make a change to a user. I will close ADU&C and immediately log off the server. Most times, a error pops up saying that MMC.EXE has stopped responding, do you want to shut it down? -Yes or No. If I select Yes, log off occurs normally. If I walk away quickly and do not catch the error, and come back later, and hit No, log off does not occur (at least cleanly) and a blue screen appears without the "Press CTRL-ALT-DELETE to log on" prompt. I cannot access the server from the server itself- CTRL-ALT-DELETE does not work. Users are authenticated (this is a DC), shares work properly, etc. Does anyone know a way to get the console back without rebooting? I did find this: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_20300527.html
, but I'd like to get the console back without hitting the power button. I know, we need to install Win2K SP3 too.
