Under Server Management - computers I see a different list of computers as compared to those listed in the Active Directory. Surely they should be the same?

When you say server management what program do you start can you describe the steps?

It is on my startup menu, properties being c:\program files\microsoft small business server\administration\launchconsole.exe. Due to non recognition of computers in domain I looked at Local Security policy in the Administrator tools. This comes up with a number of error messages 'Administrative Templates' 'The following entry in the [strings] section is too long and has been truncated'. A supplementary message makes it clear that my domain's Local security settings have become corrupted (we have recently had a virus problem) and I think I need to repair or reinstall Small Business Server 2003. Am I better off reinstalling rather than repairing?


Thanks

Depends, if you have a lot of users connected then they will loose all settings with a reinstall. Would be better to go with a backup.

Do you mean the backup of just the 'system state' ?

Well if you think you have had a virus attack you do have 2 options. Find out what damage the virus did and revert that or make a complete install of all data of a backup before the virus attack

I only want to restore whatever 'data' is necessary in order to get my Local Security Policy settings back working again. Do you know where I find that data on a domain server running SBS 2003 ?

Thanks
