Pull Domain and Security Information from Drive
Posted on 2004-09-21
Have a Windows 2000 Advanced Server. It was rebooted this morning and comes to a blue screen saying drive is not accessible. Drive was IDE mirrored via RAID card to 2 other drives. Tryed booting to each of the 3, get same result. I did not make, recommend or install this POS server so please don't ask why it is the way it is, I don't know.
Removed 2 drives and hooked up 1 straight to motherboard. Win 2K CD claims there is no previous Windows installed on HDD so no recovery or repair options have worked. Am resigned to reload. Reloaded Windows. I have installed Active Directory and set DNS back up. I still have 2 other drives from server with most files intact. If added as second drive I can get to the old files. Is there some way to pull the users, security settings or anything useful from the old drive and suck it back into the new install of Windows to save time? Thank you!
