    I have a win2k server that I used as a backup domain controller.
    Can't remember exactly how I did it but used dcpromo and created some folders to store the db info on a raid aray with 2 drives.

    Now my raid array is screwed up from someone swapping out drives and when the server tries to boot I get an error saying I need to reboot to directory services repair mode.

    So since it can't access the db files on the raid array is that probably causing the prob or could it be a lot of things.

    To get it working again, could I boot in safe mode and demote from domain controller to stand alone server or do I need to get my array with the db files repaired?

    I am just trying to learn and playing around on this server so there is nothing important and can just re-install if faster but want to make sure I don't screw up the primary domain controller on the same network.

    Here is some info on raid in Word format. I haven't played around in the real world with raid. Just some lab senerios at school.
