New Windows 2008 R2 server AD install problem
Posted on 2010-08-28
New Windows 2008 R2 server rebooted after AD and DNS server install, during which setup only asked for Directory Services repair password, which I have. After reboot will not accept Local Administrator password, which I also have. I didn't see any request to enter Domain Adminstrator password (did I just miss it?) during the AD install. I can boot to Directory Services Repair in safe mode using Directory Services Administrator password. System tells me AD and DNS are not installed.
I would like to either:
1. Revert to pre AD install (I have no backup of machine)
2. Reset Administrator password
Since this is a pre-production machine I could re-install, but that is my last choice.
