DOA active directory and cannot enter Domain Services Restore Mode
Posted on 2010-04-03
I have a single domain server 2003 system that went down during some electrical problems at a clients building recently. when it came back up there were multiple problems with it including a disappearing active directory. I run Semantic Backup client on it and attempted to restore the system state but have ran into the following problems and am in dire need of some assistance. The DSRM password doesn't seem to work so I followed the steps to reset it and came up with the following error, 'RPC SERVICE UNAVAILABLE" and a win32 error message of 06xba. have tried everything I know to override this and have failed. Need to get this up and running tonight if it's possible.
Trying to remove the Active directory and recreating it didn't work. just FYI.
