It is a pretty common problem on a 2003 server but this time setting the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" in the registry trashes the server. It doesn't think it is part of a domain any more and nothing works. Nothing can any longer find the domain. Anyone else had this happen trying to fix the journal wrap?

Hi:
Are you just curious or do you want/need an alternative method to repair?  If needed, search for "burflags" and or restore from backup?

Be careful on the setting.  The n in Dn is very important.

If I answer the question you asked.... have you had this before, will you award points?  My answer is negative, I have not had this happen..  I think first yes answer and I should split points, since that is the question you asked.  If there is no yes answer can I have all the points.  <g>

Thanks... sorry about my weak attempt at humor.

Hope you were able to fix it and not have to restore from backup.

It was all taken in good fun Larry. I didn't do anything to it. I figure one of these days I'll open a case with Microsoft. Until then it seems to be working fine.

Not sure the points were/are deserved then.  The burflags setting should work, and it will now be too late to restore from backup.  Be aware that you cannot migrate from the current version to anything newer unless you fix this.
