Encrypted files after DCPROMO
Hi experts we have recently performed a DCPromo on a legacy server. The server is a Windows 2000 with SP4 , the server held all of the FSMO roles and these have been moved to a Windows 2003 server.
The DCPROMO itself seemed fine, but a two days after the DCPROMO a user mentioned that they could not connect to a file share that was on the old DC.
Upon investigation we found that the user has put encryption on the directory, thus not allowing us to copy, open, un-encrypt . We have the default recovery policy and I have logged in as Administrator.
Is there a way I can un-encrypt the files ?
How do I find out what Key Encrypted the files ?
Why would DCPROMO cause this issue ?
