Windows Server 2003 boots fine, but services not starting
Posted on 2012-08-11
I am working on a Windows server 2003 standard Dell 1800 poweredge that boots fine, but most of the services that are supposed to start auotmatically are not starting. I was told that some permissions on the C:\ drive were changed and seems like that's when all the problems with the services started to happen. I have tried to boot from Server 2003 disc, but it doesn't recognize the current windows install so I could not run the repair. I can get to the recovery console but not sure what to do there because server boots fine. When I try to start RPC service. Error 5 access denied. Any suggestions? Thanks.
