Hi guys

We have recently migrated to a new sbs2011 svr.

Problem:

Someone deleted the network admin account under AD that provides the roles for network administrators, if we go under SBS Console and view the users, all users that had the network admin role now dispay " this user role no longer exists "

Please help.....

If this was a recent deletion, you may find the item can be recovered (or you may have to restore "system state" from your backup.

Have a look at this article.  It may help.

oh... and sack the offender :-)

have you tried adding a new user through the SBS console and seeing if the Admin role is there. Also, open up AD, Users and Computers, built in and see if Administrators group is still there.

Sorry for the delay, we had a broadband outage here, and couldn't get a reliable connection to view the server.

Here's the Group Membership for an SBS 2011 Network Administrator Template:
Domain Admins
Domain Users
Enterprise Admins
Schema Admins
User Roles
Windows SBS Admin Tools Group
Windows SBS Administrators
Windows SBS Fax Administrators
Windows SBS Link Users
Windows SBS Remote Web Access Users
Windows SBS Sharepoint_OwnersGroup
Windows SBS Virtual Private Network Users

That's it.  The Primary Group is set as Domain Users.
