Active Directory Problem

Recently ran out of space on the Primary partition on my Windows Server 2003 since reallocating more drive space to the Primary partition my SQL Server service won't start and I am unable to access the Active Directory. I'm getting "The configuration information describing this enterprise is not available. The specified domain either does not exists of could not be contacted" message. The DNS is running and have only one server serving as SQL Server and Domain Controller. Did I lose the configuration for the AD and how can I repair?

Hi,

Extending disk partition should not break SQL or AD. I believe something else would have happened.

I would start looking at the event logs in the first instance, definitely the logs should shade some lights.

Perform dcdiag and post the results along with the directory service, system, dns event logs.

No, I don't believe extending the partition did either. Just wanted to provide information on before and after. The extension was an "After". The Primary did run out of drive space causing this I believe.

Hi,

It seems that you are in bit trouble. The log says "The server holding the PDC role is down", most of the time this type of errors gone for dcpromo in and out. Since it's a single DC network, bit worried.

But, we have still options to diagnose the issue;

1) Make sure that the Windows time service is started.
2) Netlogon service started?
3) Reboot the server and make sure all the automatic services are started.

Refer this KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958804

It appears that on your PDC your Netlogon and w32tm (Time Service) is stopped. Make sure that all of the services on the FSMO role holders are started.
