HW Make: HP DL380 with Smart Array 5i
OS: SBS2003

Problem: Something happened overnight and the OS would not boot.  I was getting an error message about a logical disk being disabled.  It gave me two options F1 to leave the current state of logical drive as disabled.  F2 to enable logical disk but risk data loss.  After choosing F1 it would give the error non system disk.  F2 let me get into the OS where it started fixing errors on the drives (took an hour)  But now it gives me the error about SAM not initialized   obviously seems that AD is corrupted.  I tried the NSDUTIL but it cannot connect to the AD database.  What is your take on this?
