Hi all, we have a failed domain controller. Its rather old, poweredge 830, with raid 5 on cerc sata 6 channel controller, but its running server 2008. Its failing and boot looping, when i disable automatic restart error message is,
-c00002e2 Directory Services could not start because of the following error:
-A device attached to the system is not functioning.
-Error Status: 0x0000001.
I've verified the raid is fine, running in optimal state, i also can boot into Dsrm, ran check disk and everything but cant seem to figure out the problem. Theres nothing plugged into it, so i cant see what attached device is attached to the system. The worse part is we're a school, and we don't have any backups. I've looked at other solutions on here, but none of them work and there problems aren't similar to mine. Any help would be tremendously appreciated,
