I needed to run a test to generate a certificate using certificate services, so I had to run my local server dev box as a Domain. I had to add directory services through the server manager. I ran the DCpromo. I ran my certificate tests and proved what I needed to. Up until this point everythign was done well.
However after I was done, I wanted to get back my original user information and test box. So I DCPromo’ed again, removed the domain and assumed my user would revert to my non-domain "Users" folder. However once you do the DCPROMO up and back the User ->User mappings fail (this was the same error SQL kept giving me).
SQL wouldnt even start anymore and the repair failed. I can’t log into Biztalk and the Biztalk Groups are missing from my local computer managent- User management.
Note to self: Dont mix to many different kinds of tests. This is leading me to completely reload the box from scratch, since I was having issues installing the 2.1 ESB tool. THis is probably a better approach. On Friday I should have a step by step "building an ESB 2.1 Box from scratch"
