Active Directory expert?

Please have a look to see if you can assist with this problem:

Hardware: HP proliant server

Software: Windows server 2003 SBS

Problem: The system intermittently freezes for minutes and is very slow.

Error log: Reports various Active Directory errors.



Resolution: Hardware tested ok. Running Ntdsutil results in the following output:

Where can we take it from here? Is the Active Directory reparable within reason or should the server be rebuilt?


Thanks in advance.

I offer a fee if you can repair/rebuild this Active Directory (sitting on a RAID 1) within a reasonable time period.

Please leave a message asap.
