Yesterday I installed Sophos Enterprise Manager on my 2003 R2 server it rebooted about 4 different times and everything seemed fine. After I came back from lunch the server started rebooting itself. I finally got it to boot up but it had an error:
"Security Accounts Manager initilization failed because of the following error: Directory Service cannot start. Error Status: 0xc00002e1. Please click OK to shutdown the system and reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode, check the event log for more detailed information."
So I rebooted into Directory Service Restore Mode and ran ntdsutil files integrity. - result was CORRUPTED!
So per a MS article I tried ntdsutil "sem d a go" it said it had a DBIniitialization soemthing could not open Jet database.
Well I read an article that said if I had a secondary domain controller to seize the master with it so on my secondary controlloer I went to ntdsutil and connected to the domaon controlloer and did the "seize rid master" that is all I typed so not sure if it did anything or not.
So later my cousin showed up and suggested I reboot to last known configuration. So I did and it booted up and Sophos is gone. Now I cant access any of the folder shares and when I try to go to Active Directory Computers and Users it tells me the mmc is missing. I can get to Active Directory Domains and Trusts and both ADs are listed.
When I pull up Active Directory Users and Computers on the secondary it lists everyone just fine.
ANything I can do to get the AD running smooth again?
