  • AD Backup Restore - Users Unable to login to the Domain

    Hi All,

    I am looking for a solution for the below mentined task.

    1) I have created AD successfully created 2 to 3 users.
    2) Attached the local machine to the domain
    3) Look the System State Backup of AD.
    4) I have took off the AD from the network.
    5) I took another server with the same hardware configuration.
    6) While the servers is getting started I have pressed F8 button from the keybard.
    7) Selected Directory Service Restoration Mode and restored the backup and rebooted the machine.

    I have the problem as this stage.

    When the Restored AD is up and running fine.
    I tried to login with one of the user, but unable to login to the domain.

    Please Note: I have not removed the local machine from the Domain. I don't want to do this. Without doing this I need to successfully login to the domain.

    Error Message:
    -------------------
    "Domain Controller might be down or unavailable or Check your login and password details. If you still get this problem contact your System Administrator".

    Is there any solutions for this kind issue. I would like to know, when I have resoted the AD why should I remove the local machine from the domain and rejoin to the domain.

    I am looking for a solution without dis-join and join the local machine to domain. Can any one guide me on this issue.

    Thanks & Regards

    Did your second server have the same name as the offline one?

      Does the new server have the same ip address as the old one?
