Cannot access win2k server

By ladcas ·
Following a power cut(UPS failed but thats a different problem), one of our Win2k DC's "appeared" to come back up OK. However, when trying to log on or remotely access it, I receive the following: The system can not log you on due to the following error: Insufficient system resouces exist to complete the requested service.
I have tried the usuals, reboot, safe mode, last known good config... but no joy. I really dont want to rebuild and could do with some advice.

dont know if this helps

I've seen that message before when there was a problem with the Symantec/Norton Antivirus client. This was sometime back, but I think I ran a repair from the Win2K Adv. Server CD OR I used the Recovery Console to disable the AV services (listsvc command). Rebooted, was able to log on afterwards, uninstalled AV, rebooted, reinstalled it.

Rebuild !

Many thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunataly, no resolution. Rather than spend more time diagnosing the problem, have decided to rebuild, probably quicker and safer in the long-run.
