Windows Server 2003 error messages
I recently removed and re installed my hard drives from my HP server running windows server 2003 and when i restarted the server i received the following message

ISASS.EXE - SYSTEM ERROR Security accounts manager initialization failed because of the following error: directory service cannot start. Error status: 0xc00002e1. Please click OK to shutdown this system and reboot into directory services restore mode, check the event log for more detailed information.

If i did intsall the drives in the wrong slots can i igure out which hard drive goes into which slot?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I doubt if this error is really due to removing and reinstalling the drives unless somehow the server was not shutdown properly before the maintenance and the AD database was corrupted. It sounds like you need to go through an AD diagnosis and restore process.
