We received a phone call from a client with a SBS server saying they could no longer access their server. When we looked at the Server it had rebooted and was 3/4 of the way through but had stopped with an error message of:
lsass.exe - System Error
Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because of the following error: Directory Service cannot start. Error status: 0xc00002e1. Please click OK to shutdown this system and reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode, check the Event Log for more detailed information.

Upon rebooting without going into Directory Services Restore mode (DSRM) before this error message appears the system says Active Directory is repairing Indices.

When I rebooted into Directory Services Restore mode I found a lot of errors in the event log of services not starting. A few event logs read as such:
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Service Control Manager
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      7023
Date:            23/06/2006

Description:
The World Wide Web Publishing Service service terminated with the following error:

Upon more investigation I found that the Kerberos Key Distribution Center and Netlogon services will not start.
When I try to start the Kerberos Key Distribution Center service manually in DSRM I get the error:
Could not start the KKDC service on local computer.
Error 0x80090339: The local machine must be a Kerberos KDC (Domain Controller) and it is not.

When trying to start Netlogon the service fails with the following message:
The Net Logon service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they do not have work to do, for example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service

Do I need to rebuild the clients server or is there a tool or process I can use to repair this server?
