  • Cannot Repair the Active Directory Database by Using the Ntdsutil Tool

    hello,
    I am working with Windows Server 2003 on my comapq machine. I was taking regular backups of system state data using the Arcserve backup r11.1. My server crashed yesterday now I am not able to recover my active directory by using the Ntdsutil tool. I hv tried to look in the knowledge base but the article is not available there. Can any one help me to rectify this prob.

      Sometimes, it more easy to restore backup of the system (if you have update backup) via directory restore mode then "fix" the active directory via NTDSUTIL.
      Please verity that your antivirus doesnt scan (online scan or/and schedule scan):

      C:\windows\ntds
      C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL folders.

      Scanning this folders can cause the active directory database to fail.
