Active Directory operation failed on VMdc2.smtp25.internal

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I am encountering with an issue as I am unable to remove Mail Box while Active Directory get fail over the VMdc2.smtp25.internal. Following is the additional information. 

Active Directory get fail over the VMdc2.smtp25.internal

Resulting with disappointment, I’ve decided to restore Windows 2003 Server from an Image file via Reflect v4.2. The restoring process went quite smoothly though when the Server gets started it welcomed me with an error message that an lsass.exe cannot start.

Somehow, I’ve managed it by myself booting the system in a safe mood though what I need now is to get a fresh copy of Windows. I may ask you people,

Is there any way to restored image file without any sorts of errors with respect to Active Directory?

Following is the error message dialogue box which appears the time I boot the server. Now I’ve got no solution but to restore Windows 2003 Server. 

isass.exe - System Error

isass.exe – System Error

Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because of the following error: A device attached to the system is not functioning. Error Status: 0xc0000001. Please Click Ok to shutdown this system and reboot into Safe Mode. Check the event log for more detailed information.

This appears when the server gets to the “Windows starting up…” screen.

Try to do these 3 methods to solve your problem.

First Method, Restore your Sam files from Backup. You can restore it from the disk/archived copy w/ the use of Restore Wizard/ an automated system R.W. Then, copy the SAM file from the Repair Folder. And lastly, you need to install again your Windows XP.

Hope it will help you.

Hi Jabez Zion,
Your issue occurs due to some error in your operating system which takes effect when restoring tasks in your Windows.
One of the best solutions for such problem is by downloading a Windows fixer which can solve this issue and make your OS stand up again.
I recommend for you to use the Advanced System Optimizer which is very great software.
