LSASS.exe error after windows repair
Posted on 2010-11-23
One of our customer's servers crashed over the weekend and we reloaded windows onto it and did a system state restore from Symantec Backup Exec in order to retrieve active directory. After the restore and a reboot the server looked like it was loading windows and then would reboot, and this would continue on and on. I ran a windows repair from the windows 2003 server cd and it got to the point of installing windows and I receive an error message stating "Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because of the following error: directory service cannot start. Error status: 0xc00002e1" I've tried clicking ok, which restarts the server and booting into safe mode, but still receive the same error message. Any ideas?
