Restoring NDPS after server crash

I am in the process of restoring my NW SBS 6.0 SP5 server back from the
dead. It was in a tree with two other servers. In the other forums I
was told that I could leave the Broker and Manager in the tree. When the
broker starts up it can't find the resource manager. Did I not restore
something back or is there something else I need to do?

Just wondering,

The error message when the broker starts up is:
The Broker could not enable the resource Managamnet Service Error code -
603.

You need to reconfigure the volume the borker uses, as that's gone from
the tree.

I know this is probably annoying but how do I do that? Is it something
in the Broker object? All volumes have been replaced in tree as they
were before.

Re: Restoring NDPS after server crash

Ok the broker starts, but the NPSM.nlm tries to start but fails. The
following is the errors:
\
The NDPS Manager database resides on volume 'unknown'. The database for
the manager is not on this file server or the volume containing the
database is not mounted. The database must be moved to a mounted volume.

So hit yes to move the database, but it kicks out to the console and has
this message:

NDPSM-3.01-202
Error (-603) occured while accessing directory services

server 5.60-2713 [nmid=D0003]

So close,

And did you try the procedure in the TID?

Yes, the Broker loads good now. Its when I type in NDPSM.nlm when and
choose the manager, that I get the error. Broker stays loaded.

Ok I found another TID that explains what should be under the Other Tab
of both the Broker and the Manger. I was missing the Database volume
portion under the Manager. Everything printing wise is running again.

I can't express enough of how grateful I am to you and everyone on this
forum. You guys really saved my behind this weekend. I wish I could buy
you guys a round of beers!

Thanks again so much!
