  • Active Directory 2003

    I have one DC and another ADC on windows 2003. My DC crashed and i have the backup of the DC till the date. ADC is working fine. Can i restore the DC backup to the crashed one. Its throwing the following error:
    Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because of the following error: Directory Service cannot start. Error status: 0xc00002e1. Please click OK to shutdown this system and reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode, check the Event Log for more detailed information.
    and not allowing to login.

    I have the restore password and is it ok to restore the dc with the backup, Will it create any issues with existing ADC running which have the updated database
    Please help

    If you have a working ADC, I suggest you "carpe fsmo" and then remove traces of the original one
    Do a fresh install of Windows and DCPROMO and you will be OK
