I re-installed a new sbs 2003 server on the same computer as before, i updated it to service pack 2 & all the most recent security patches with an active directory configured.
After that, I reboot the server and Pressed F8 to boot into directory services restore mode, restored the server from the last known backup (I have a acronis image from my server and a systate backup from ntbackup)
I restore the ntds folder from acronis and place it on the server to replace the files and set the permission on the folder, when i do this, i got the error mentionned below, and use ntdsutil to check integrity, and everything was ok.
All seem to go ok till I came to log on to the restored server, I get the error
"lsass.exe system error" Directory services could not start because of the following error: The specified network password is not correct error status 0x000006A Please click OK to shutdown this system & reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode & check the event log for more detailed information.
When i try Ntbackup with restore the systate, i got so many many errors. And the AD did not start. i don't know where to begin for that ...
By the way, did somebody know a good free application to transfert the AD from a sbs 2003 server to a fresh new install of it and works simple?
