Cannot repair Active Directory
Posted on 2004-05-02
I have encountered the famous Active Directory 0xc00002e1 error in Windows 2003 Server after resizing a partition on the hard disk. Now, plenty information is given on how to recover everything. You have to run the server in Directory Services Repair Mode, then use ntdsutil.
The problem is, when I run the Directory Services Repair Mode and log in as Administrator, the system logs in normally and then after showing the "Applying Computer Settings", it simply logs off by itself before I can do anything. I've spent the whole day reading and trying things, but I'm strongly limited by the fact that I don't have a single way of logging to the server (no safe mode, no command prompt, no directory services repair mode, etc.)
If anyone has a clue, it would really be appreciated!
