Hello and thank you for your time.
We have server 2003 SBS SP2. It acts as DC FS and App.
Out of no where we are getting this error when server boots up. The error comes up right before logon screen loads.
Lsass.exe System error, security accounts manager initialization failed because of the following error: Directory Services cannot start . Error status 0x00002e1
I googled the issue and found http://support.microsoft.com/kb/258062
I tried the provided solutions in article but to no avail.
We have imaging backup. I recovered the entire server thinking this will fix the issue, but the error still persists.
I'm running a chkdsk disk /f/r. No errors found.
Has anyone seen this error?
Many thanks in advance.....
