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.
