hi all,

A clients Small Business Server 2003 came up with this error after a power blackout this morning:

Load needed dlls for kernel

Their C partition is a RAID1 mirror.  I am attempting to follow troubleshooting suggestions for this issue which involves some recovery console work (chkdsk etc) but nobody knows the administrator password.  the domain admin account in AD was actually disabled some time ago as it was trying to be hacked and nobody remembers what the password was at that time.  So basically I can't get into the recovery console to run a chkdsk to even see if that will resolve their issue.

Does anyone have any suggestions to either get around the lack of admin pw to access the recovery console, or a method to overcome the original error?

Could i pull a drive out of the RAID1 and chkdsk that from another PC and put it back in by itself and see if that works?  Or is that asking for trouble?

Am I going to have to reinstall the server, apply the relevant service packs, then restore the system from NT Backup?

thanks
nathan

Welllllll, regarding your question about ripping the drive out, it would depend on your raid controller. If you take the drive out and do a chkdsk, then the drives will be out of sync. This would be a big deal if they were in a mirrored raid, but you're expecting them to get out of sync. Can you re-sync the drives from your raid controller? I know on mine I can select one drive and sync it to the other. This would force the drives to be the same.

Regarding the password issue, Petri comes to the rescue once again!
