SERVER WONT BOOT - Security Accounts Manager initialization failed.
My server 2003 will not boot up.
The system does not get to the login screen and the error is - 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 into Directory Services Restore Mode, check the event log for more detailed information.
I've got a another DC and a good system state backup of this server.
Can anyone advise on what actions I should take?
