Remove from Domain

It looks like someone either deleted the partition or the drive is bad. If this server is booting up and another partition is unavailable then I say the partition was deleted...

Good Luck!

all partitions are part of a raid 5 array, so the drives are good

LOCAL ADMIN PASSWORD IS NOT CHANGED DURING THE PROCESS YOU MENTION. HOWEVER, THE LOCAL ADMIN TRUSTEES TO SEVERAL SYSTEM FILES MAY HAVE BEEN REMOVED AND ASSIGNED TO THE OLD DOMAINS ADMIN !
BOOT FROM SETUP DISK AND PERFORM A WINDOWS NT REPAIR.

GOOD LUCK

1. anytime you remove a server from a domain it resets the local administrators pswd.
2. When you added it to the 2nd domain it now allows domain #2 admin full rights via the domain #2 user / pswd.
3. It sound to me that you need to reset the local administrators account pswd.
*** to do this log into the local PC (not the domain w/ a user that has local admins rights [ hopefully you created this backdoor user, which could be your username / pswd that has admin rights when the server was initially installed]}. --- then reset the local administrator password. --- rerun disk administrator on the local machine and all should turn back around normally. While you are there in "User Manager" --- add the Domain Admin group to the local administrators group on the member server.

This should clear up your problem.

Its sounds like you have a two part problem.The local admin password changing baffles me.I have seen the case where administrators dont realise that it does not get changed with user manager routinely and stays the same throuought the life of the server....unless you specifically set the domain selection to \\localmachinename. Are you certain this isn't the case?/
The raid 5 array concerns me. If someone used nt to compose the raid array using regular old domain administrator , your security token is invalid on the new domain, plain and simple. For any type of nt raid, even on nt wkstn,you must have a valid sid
token to access the object to administer.I have been burned on this one with "spanning"
I assume that a trust was not established before disconnect to pass over ownership?
