    First off I know this is not the recommened method for restoring a DC. That said this is my problem:

    Without going into too much detail my backup partition somehow got currupted. So I used a data recovery program to get back my images and the one I have is over 40 days old. I realize this is pushing the tombstone life on AD objects but its the best I have. So I restored my win2k DC and it seems OK except for the fact that almost all of the computer accounts no longer seem to work and have a broken trust. Here is the error I am getting in the event log when a user attempts to log in:

    "The session setup from the computer DOMAINMEMBER failed to authenticate. The name of the account referenced in the security database is DOMAINMEMBER$. The following error occurred: Access is denied. "

    Now I can disjoin and rejoin a workstation and that fixes it and it works fine. However I am wondering if there is a universal fix for this on the server to restablish these trusts rather than visiting all 200 workstations.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks so much

    there is only 1 method to restore a domain controller from on image when you have multiple DOMAIN controllers..

    1. restore image
    2. after restore immediatelly boot in safe mode
    3. restore a non-authoritive system state (with the backup software that you use)
    4. reboot into windows


    If not done this way you are ****ed an need to call MS techsupport
