We have primary and backup domain controllers. The PDC is server 2003 and the BDC is server 2008. Due to some power issues, the PDC is now corrupt. I get this error on boot up.
"lsass.exe - System Error
Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because of the following error: Directory Service cannot start. Error Status: 0xc00002e1. Please click OK to shutdown this system and reboot Directory Services Restore Mode, check the event log for more detailed information."
The PDC has Backup Exec installed on it and was doing a system state backups regularly. When i boot into Directory Services Restore Mode i cannot run Backup Exec. Services will not start.
Everything is currently running on our BDC.
Has anyone encountered this and found a way go get AD restored or a way to get backup exec working in Directory Services Restore Mode?
Thanks in advance for you time.
I do have a Server 2008 server available that we were planning on replacing the PDC with . This if fairly new to me but from what i understand, The PDC needs to be online to Seize domain naming master, infrastructure master, PDC, RID master, schema master.
