Windows 2000 Repair NTDS.dit - Single DC no system backups available.
Posted on 2014-01-13
My one and only Windows 2000 DC RAID controller crashed this morning and it seemed to corrupt my AD database since I am not able to log in. Upon windows services loading up I received an Issas error stating to reboot into Directory services mode..
So I did. I looked up all the NTDUTIL.EXE and ESENTUTL.EXE commands in order to repair/recover the ntds.dit db but no luck.
Command outputs generated error such as:
Operation terminated with error -1811 (JET_errFileNotFound, File not found)
Is there any special software or utility that maybe able to successfully repair this?
or am I stuck having to rebuild the server? :\
