I have restored the AD 2003 without any error. The server booted up and
prompted for the user id, password with domain option. When I give the user
id (admin account), it through the following error:
"The system could not log you on".

Any help is much appreciated

The following is obvious and likely occurred to you but I will ask
just in case it helps:

Did the password get changed between the time the backup was made
and time the restore was performed?

Have you tried both of those? (If true...)

what account are you using? Adminitrator account or another account?
Did the account exist at the moment the backup was created?

Hi Selva


first i would say that your error message is not complete
it must be either saying that "local policy do not allow you to logon
to the system interactively"
or
"you are not authorised to logon to this system"

i would say that you logon to the system as administrator check the
group policies that whether that user has the right to logon to the
system or not
and if not then give appropriate rights to the user who is not able to
logon to the machine

and if anyone is not able to logon to the machine then try installing
the adminpack on any XP client machine and edit the domain policies
from that machine

Hi all-

Thanks for your response.

1. The user account and password is same as that of production system. I
didn't change the password before or after taking the backup.

2. The user account is named Administrator Account part of Administrator Group

3. Using the same named administrator account, I can login to the production
Active directory setup without any issue.

4. The error is sam what I have mentioed. I am logging to the AD server
locally with named administrator after restoring the system state.

5. I have noticed that in restore mode, I can able to logon to the system
using DS restore password and checked the nelogon and syslog share is
missing. I have recreated the shared and rebooted. But, the system is not
accepting the user id and password.

6. The test server where I restore the production system state is identical
hardware. Both are HP ML350 G3 server with same hardware configuration using
the same image.
