ndsrepair on windows 2008 r2 via rdp


hi there,

in the ndsconsole i press start for dsrepair, it is shown as started,
but not in the same session obviously.

is the only way to be able to use dsrepair to access the server
'directly' or with vmware-tools (in my case servers are virtual) or is
there a way via RDP as well?

thanks in advance, florian

It should pop up an "interactive services detection" notification. This allows you to switch to "session 0" and view dsrepair there.
Have done this often.

It won't actually help for this particular thing. This behaves the same way even on the local console.

Also, you can stop the "Interactive Services Detection" service. However that is not recommended as it decreases your security/reliability.

Have you configured your eDirectory service to run as a different user than the default (LocalSystem)?
Is your edirectory service set to "allow service to interact with the desktop"?

Try the following (at an elevated command prompt)

sc config ui0detect start= auto
sc start ui0detect
rundll32 winsta.dll,WinStationSwitchToServicesSession

That should get you to session 0

to get back to your regular RDP session (again from an elevated command prompt)

rundll32 winsta.dll,WinStationRevertFromServicesSession
