    Today had to restart the global catalog DC at work due to a software upgrade. When the server rebooted and was about to get to the logon screen I got this error message.

    :( Great.

    So what I've concluded so far is that the Ntds.dit file has become currupt an needs to be repaired/restored.

    I have a system state backup from yesterday as I create on everynight (phew) but I'm not sure of the approuch to this. I mean Authoritative restore vs. non-authoritative restore? Any ideas guys.

    I cant do anything till after 3.15 when the kids are gone but I need to do this today. The server is in Directory Services Restore Mode and the users can access their files due to there being another member server on the network for authentication.

    Comment VERY welcome. The reason I'm asking is the last time I tried to restore a system state things went wrong so wanted to get your views on the process.

    That's the ticket Si. You have your AD still up and running so the Non-Authoritative restore should restore your system state data and then AD will replicate onto the DC. :D
