Ok, here is the scenario.
I administer a server that has windows 2003 and ad installed the one and only DC.
A few months ago the computer "crashed" (networking stopped working, could boot the computer with no prob) and i had to repair it using the Windows CD, and everything was working great again. The problem now is that the computer has gotten to the point where it takes 5 hours to boot (taken about 3 months).
When the server is up and running everthing works great but if i try to access the network connections the server freezes and i have to reboot (users are able to access files though).
What i will try now is to disable the onboad network card and install a new one....... agreee/disagree input?
If that dont work i will uninstall the AD and install it again.. And create the users with exact same username and password.
Will the users than be able to connect to the server without having to join the domain again ?
I do not have a "good" backup of the system state and therefore i cannot use directory repair mode.... or?
Thank you all...
