Our AD database corrupted, and I'm trying to restore from a backup (MS Tools aren't working to repair the database). Launching backup exec in restore mode asks me to log in, but the backup exec services can't start. I've changed them all to Local Service account, and they simply give the following error:

Could not start the Backup Exec Server service on Local Computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

What do I do now?
