Ok here goes:
I had to reboot a DC this morning after it decided to blue screen for no apparent reason (said fatal logon error?)
Anyways, upon rebooting I get this error msg:
"lsass.exe Security Accounts Manager Initialization failed because of the following error: Directory Service can not start: Error status 0xc00002e1. Please check OK to shutdown and reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode, check event logs for more detailed information"
First reaction "This cant be good". The other odd thing about this is that when the message popped up, my keyboard and mouse went off the fritz and I couldn't click or press enter or anything, so I did a hard power off.
Keyboard and mouse were on a KVM, so I figured "OK, plug in external keyboard/mouse"
I reboot again and try into Directory Services Restore Mode, and the same error msg pops up, and my keyboard and mouse is locked up.
I have tried to reboot into every type of safe mode there is (including debugging mode), and the same error pops up and I can not do jack on this machine.
Anyone out there have any ideas? Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
