    Export Entire SBS 2003 Registry

    Hello All,

    Any ideas on how to export the entire SBS 2003 Premium R2 registry before I
    perform some work on the server so it can be restored in the case of any
    issues down the line?

    Thanx.

    A System State backup is your best bet. If you have more than one Domain
    Controller you may have to look at different options. Restoring the registry
    on a DC, even if you have just one, is not something to take lightly.

    Thanx for the response. The SBS is having Event ID: 1168. Right now, when I
    try to RDP into the server, I get the following error "the workstation driver
    is not installed" which led me to
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=322267 . Even the Remote Web
    Workplace (RWW) and OWA web portals do not come up.

    Any advise how I can go about this besides what the KB article above suggests?

    Thanx.

    Are you getting this error at startup?

    "Directory Services cannot start" error message when you start your
    Windows-based or SBS-based domain controller

    No, it is not at start up, although at start up it has always displayed a
    dialogue box that says something like "At least one service failed to
    start...." but that has not affected any functionalities. It displays the
    error "the workstation driver is not installed" when I try to use Remote
    Desktop Connection to get to the server. Now it seems no AD account can get
    to the server. Now I am having to use a third party remote solution to get to
    the server as backup in times like this. I found the current Event ID 1168 in
    the Event Viewer under "System". According to what I have read after googling
    "the workstation driver is not installed", this may have to do with Active
    Directory. I have read through
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=322267 but I am quite sure
    this does not apply because the "Client for Microsoft Networks" is still on
    the server and was not removed and the dependency between Netlogon and Server
    Service is already there. However, I noticed lots normally functioning
    services disabled such as DHCP, DNS, Fax, etc as well as others that are
    necessary for full functionality.

    Not sure what's going on here but I think the link you provided should be
    more helpful since it has to do with AD.

    Thanx.

    Does a scan with the SBS 2003 BPA show anything?

    Were you way behind on updates and recently started installing updates?

    http://support.microsoft.com//kb/956189

    There's a newer update to fix this issue but my search skills seem to be
    lacking today. I can't find it.
