Returning a rebuilt server to the domain
Posted on 2004-11-19
In light of my lsass.exe error problem, I had to reinstall Windows 2000 Server. Presently our exchange server is the Domain controller (running Active Directory). I now need to get the rebuilt server in question back up and going...and resuming PDC functions. I still must install Service Pack 4. The rebuilt server has joined the domain and is recognized in AD on the Exchange Server.
MY PROBLEM IS THIS: when attempting to install Active Directory on the rebuilt system...I get a message stating the domain cannot be found. Should I be doing replication from the Exchange server to restore AD back on the rebuilt server?
I know this is probably a fundamental question but I'm a rookie, and at the time I have no "big brother or sister" to assist me getting through this. Thanx!
