First, english is not my mothers tongue.
I have a big problem with restoring an Active Directory enviroment.
I want to restore two domain-controller, but i get an 0xc00002e2 error at boot.
Each DC has his own Backup-Job with Application-Aware Processing enabled.
I testet different backup points, also the latest FULL Backup.
Why do i get this error?
OS: Server 2012R2
Veeam is on latest build
What have i checked?:
Code: Select all
You need to boot the machine in "directory services restore mode", login with the local Administrator and the password you had to set when promoting the DC. Move all the *.log files inside c:\windows\NTDS\ to a folder elsewhere. Try to reboot in normal mode. If it's not working go back in DSRM, repeat the moving of any log files in c:\windows\NTDS\, Open up a CMD (with Run as admin), Enter the command "esentutl /p c:\windows\NTDS\ntds.dit", Enter the command "ntdsutil", In the ntdsutil prompt now enter the following commands (no quotes): "activate instance ntds" "Files" "Compact to c:\temp\" "quit" "quit" Now move the c:\windows\NTDS\ntds.dit file to a save folder elsewhere. Copy the c:\temp\ntds.dit file to c:\windows\NTDS\ Again remove all the .LOG files inside c:\windows\NTDS Reboot normally.
