I had a disk issue on a MS Virtual Server and had to restore some backups. One of the VM disk images is the Enterprise Root CA for the domain - it's a Member Server. The backup was a few days old so the secure channel to the domain is broken. Normally this is easily fixed with the 'netdom.exe' or 'nltest.exe' resource kit tools, however this fails to work on the CA - the error is:
The machine account password for the local machine could not be reset The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted
Name resolution is working perfectly and I can see a conversation with a DC when I attempt the reset, however it fails every time. I have searched and searched and can't find an answer to this. I assume as it's a CA it either won't work full stop or there are some additional steps I need to do?
