Did you have a backup of your information? My upbringing and was tought to have backups of backups. In case of emergencies. Your situation is not different your a very good admin but always keep backups. My advice is try to find matching components and see if that fires up your server to get it going. Then if it starts to work. If not. ...... Your up a creek.

A couple of days ago my PDC died due to a hardware failure. Since I had a secondary DC I hoped it would take over silently. Well, it did, but not exactly silently. I finally claimed the PDC role for it, which apparently worked. But I had to edit the DNS information to remove the PDC using the management console. After that the system seemed to work. At least I could log in from our Win7 clients.Now I had to reboot after a power fail. Linux clients using Kerberos and LDAP on the new DC still work flawlessly. However after some time the system broke. It turned out that the Bind9 DLZ server was not running (anymore?) and would not restart, since it lacked reverse domains.I had a slave server, which had the zones cached. I made this one authorative to get the system going again. Logons from Linux work fine. But Win7 logins fail.I meanwhile have the file system of the original DC accessible again and could put that into a VM.Is there any advise how to get the system going again? I'm close to scrap it all and restart from scratch.Thanks for your help,  - lars.-- To unsubscribe from this list go to the following URL and read theinstructions:  https://lists.samba.org/mailman/options/samba
