Tried Dsrepair (automated and local database)  Sys:system\dsrepair.log has 8 errors.

File  Partitio.nds  pos:0000a0, rec...
ROOT object does not have mandatory flags set
Object ID...
Partition Root identified in the wrong partition
Partition id changed frokm 00000 to ffff
object id:  
partition root object does not exit.

7 errors on entry.nds  

I CAN DELETE THE NDS and start over - there are 55 users.  I can give everyone root access for today and later on, can work and fix the rights.

would the login script work if I start over ?

PLS HELP... It is a production server and it needs to be up in a couple of hours

I don't know if it is appropriate to post here, but I am willing to compensate monetarily if some one can call me and walk me through it

I am unable to restore directory services files from the back up.  All data files are backed up and is restorable
