I am running two servers on windows server 2003 Standard edition. They both have two com ports one on each is connected to the router and the other two are connected to each other. I set the second server up to be a backup DC. The setup went fine but upon reboot i get the error message lsass.exe specefied domain does not exist and it just reboots.

    Are you able to start the server in Safe Mode? What is the complete error message? Were you ever able to boot the server after setup?

    So, after installing the server OS, you were never able to login?

    Just reinstall the Operating system and start again.
