HP Homeserver, domains, and trusts
Posted on 2009-04-24
I need some help with overcomming this problem.
I had created a Windows 2003 domain server and joined my Homeserver to it. The domain server was setup in a virtual machine stored on the homeserver. I had it running fine and it was running off of the homeserver itself. I also added my computer to the domain. With the security policies, I set it up to only allow access from the network and terminal services to the Domain Admins group (bad mistake). I always leave my homeserver on too, so the vm machine would always stay on as well. The shares on the homeserver were setup to be allowed to my domain account and the domain admins.
Problem came when I walked in today and found it inexplicably off. I luckily can login to my computer. Problem is... I cant login to my homeserver. As you can see, I cant remote into it cause the login's are denied access. I cant access the vm to start it up because it's only avail to the domain accounts, and since domain server is offline, cant logon. I cant access the homeserver locally, cause as we know, it doesnt have a display (I was looking into the usb adaptor > VGA, but I dont know if it would install).
So, there's my problem. I dont believe u can take out the harddrives and plug them in individually and take the info off them. I tried creating a replica domain vm server, but doesnt work because of the trust issues. I dont know where to begin with it.
