Hi all,

I have a SBS 2003 on which a chkdsk was performed.  It replaced a bunch of security ids and after reboot, most services don't start most notably the rpc service.  I have a backup fo the system state which is done with veritas.  I tried to do a repair but from the windows interface it says it cannot contact the AD (when trying the add/remove programs change option).  I then tried by booting with the sbs cd that came with the server but what it does is that it installs a fresh version in another partition.  Anyone has any ideas?
Also, neither backup exec nor windows backup are able to start.

the rpc service has no dependencies, however a bunch of services depend on it.
