Admin object deleted from NDS !

By Oz_Media ·
I'm trying to restore the 'Admin' object in my Netware 5.1 NDS tree. I read a Tech Republice E-zine just a while back and laughed at the possibility of this happening.
I still didn't follow the advice by giving myself individual authorization instead of the 'Same as Admin' setup. DOH!

Admin object deleted from NDS !

Hscovell - Wow! What a prediciment. You actually have several choices, though. First Option: You could restore the object from you tape backup, that is assuming that you do back up NDS objects. Second, and a little more work, is to re-install Netware. Obviously, you MUST do a full server backup, NDS, files...all of it. Then, reinstall Netware and join the existing tree. PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE PROMPTS, SO AS TO PRESERVE YOUR EXISTING TREE. When you are re-installing, it will reinstall the SYS Volume. Make sure you tell it the SAME EXACT size it was before, otherwise you will lose data on another volume, and possibly the whole volume. After re-install, you will have your admin object in NDS. Then, if you wish, you can restore all or some of you old sys volume from tape. The last option: Completely rebuild the Netware environment, on that server. Easier than it sounds, depending on the servers usage. If it is just a file/print server you can backup the data, completely reinstall Netware on this server (create new sys and other volumes), merge into the existing NDS tree, then restore your data. Print objects will need to be re-created. Hope this helps.

Thanks, it is a really stupid mistake that will never happen again.(sure) So, I reinstalled the directory and got my Admin object back, the reinstalled the backup from my last job.
This seems to be a combination of both your answers but it worked well. Thanks for the help.
Harv.
