SBS 2011 Farils to boot up normal, but can boot to AD restore mode from f8 menu
Posted on 2014-07-15
After a cold shutdown by the one of the users, the sbs server keeps restarting before even getting to windows logo. I tried No reboot on system failure and I know got a blue screen with this code:
STOP: c00002e2 Directory Services could not start
I am able to boot to Directory Services Restore Mode, but not sure what to do next. We should have a local usb disk backup, but when I went to Widnows Backup, it did not show anything. I saw a suggestion online that said to rename the log files under Windows\ntds folder, but that did not work for me. I also ran chkdsk on the c drive , but that did not help either.
