Error on boot after a power outage along the following lines:
Directory Services cannot start, error status: 0xc00002e1, Please click OK to Shutdown this system and reboot into directory services restore mode
Booted into Safe Mode (AD services restore) and tried the following:
- Determined the NTDS location (it was the default: c:\windows\ntds\)
- Renamed the edb.chk file and try to boot to Normal mode <-- no good
- ESENTUTL /g c:\windows\ntds\ntds.dit” <-- no good
- restored the entire NTDS file from last ShadowProtect backup <-- sorted
StorageCraft ShadowProtect saves the day again....
