Directory Service cannot start, Windows Server 2003 error, lsass.exe system error
Posted on 2007-11-26
Our primary domain controller is giving me the following error:
lsass.exe system error
Security Accounts Manager initalization Failed
Directory Service Cannot start
Error status: 0xc00002e1
I came into work this morning and that error was up on the screen.
This server is our: Domain Controller, Global Catalog, DNS and DHCP server
MS Server 2003
So we are have all sorts of fun problems throughout our network right, great Monday morning. I was able to get into Directory Services Restore Mode but have no clue what exactly I am suppose to do. This is a major problem. I am open to all suggestions? We do have another machine that is another Domain Controller. Is an easy fix just to make another server our DNS and DHP server? Again open to all suggestions, thanks...
