Active Directory Issues After DC Loss - SID folder rights wont work
Posted on 2010-04-08
We recently had a system failure. While working with a tool it deleted all users in the users OU. In an attempt to resolve this we attempted to restore from a backup. However, as Unitrends is (in my opinon) a poor product we attempted to restore, just to find out that their directions wrecked the server and cannot be restored now. Good thing we have multiple DCs, but still the effects are frustrating.
Since then I have had to re-create all users that were affected. Now when i am assigning rights, etc I see SID 1-563543-543523-54534 in the access rights box, and it hourglasses for some time. Somtimes they become filled, but most of the time they just appear, with no display name. I know there are the old SIDs associated with the old user acconts. But now I try and add users to folders and other resouces and it cannot locate them.
I have tried unjoining from the domain and rejoining the servers after deleting the profile from AD. We have several Domain Controllers
Can someone recommend a way to resolve this?
Thanks for all your help Experts!
