System State Restore Troubles


A

Amanda

I am restoring my current Small Business Server 2000 to a test system so I
can test a migraton to SBS 2003. The restore worked fantastic except for one
small problem. I can't log into the domain from workstations, or create
objects in Active Directory. I receive the error when I try to create an
object in Active Directory.

Active Directory
Windows cannot create the object because:
The Directory Service was unable to allocate a relative identifier.

I have also listed the Event Log errors I am getting.

I am receiving SAM 16650 errors in my System Event Log as follows:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: SAM
Event Category: None
Event ID: 16650
Date: 11/02/2004
Time: 8:01:57 AM
User: N/A
Computer: THOMAS
Description:
The account-identifier allocator failed to initialize properly.
The record data contains the NT error code that caused the failure.
Windows 2000 will retry the initialization until it succeeds; until that
time,
account creation will be denied on this Domain Controller. Please look for
other SAM event logs that may indicate the exact reason for the failure.

I am also receiveing NETLOGON error 5723 when I try to log into a connected
workstation as follows.:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: NETLOGON
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5723
Date: 11/02/2004
Time: 7:56:22 AM
User: N/A
Computer: THOMAS
Description:
The session setup from the computer NE008 failed because there is no trust
account in the security database for this computer. The name of the account
referenced in the security database is NE008$.

I have checked the fsmo roles and they are all set to Thomas (listed below),
which is the restored server. I am not sure what to do and have found
limited information. I did have a backup domain controller in the live
system that is not in the test system and wonder if that mught be where the
problem lies.

tdsutil: roles
fsmo maintenance: Connections
server connections: Connect to server Thomas
Binding to Thomas ...
Connected to Thomas using credentials of locally logged on user
server connections: Quit
fsmo maintenance: select Operation Target
select operation target: List roles for connected server
Server "Thomas" knows about 5 roles
Schema - CN=NTDS
Settings,CN=THOMAS,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configu
ration,DC=NE
Domain - CN=NTDS
Settings,CN=THOMAS,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configu
ration,DC=NE
PDC - CN=NTDS
Settings,CN=THOMAS,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configu
ration,DC=NE
RID - CN=NTDS
Settings,CN=THOMAS,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configu
ration,DC=NE
Infrastructure - CN=NTDS
Settings,CN=THOMAS,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configu
ration,DC=NE
select operation target: Quit
fsmo maintenance: Quit
ntdsutil: Quit
Disconnecting from Thomas ...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have done that and had the restored server come up as the Role Owner for
all roles. I have also ran:

Netdom Query /d:NE FSMO and had all roles come up as Thomas (recovered
server)
ntdsutil fsmo maintenance - listed below comes up with the right DC
Dcdiag also passes with all roles for Thomas.

I am at a loss.

Hi Amanda! Sorry I'm also lost here. Is there any thing in the event log you
can find related to this, Post Warnings and Errors in the Directory Service
Log
