To be absolutely sure to have about a clean and non-corrupt system, I'd
reccommend to reinstall on a CLEAN os, without manually
Just install whatever OS you use, like and know on a empty fresh machine
(I DO like mdadm raid1, and have only good experiences with it, contrary
to Rowland) One tip: don't use btrfs for your AD server, use ext4, or xfs.
I really advise to NOT start manually deleting stuff etc on your current
install. You want to be as safe as possible after your misery. Even a
unused desktop machine with raid1 will be better than patching your
current misbehaving machine, is my advise.
That way you'd also be able to seperate AD DC functionality from your
fileserver. If you want to be REALLY cheap, you could even start like this:
desktop machine, raid one, install kvm, and run TWO dc's on that
machine. It's very easy to move around those kvm machines to different
hosts, if you get some budget, or another spare machine.
(but: running two DCs on the same host of course does NOT give you
redundancy if that host goes down, it could just help against the kind
of corruption you experienced)
