We had a power outage over the weekend due to some storms. All servers went down, and eventually came back up fine. All accept for one. Tried rebooting it, but took hours to apply computer settings and network settings before getting to the CTL ALT DEL screen.
Did login, but that as well took about 2 hours to finally reach the desktop. Digging around, 80% of services didn't start, cannot get to network properties, WSUS, any applications, cannot remote to it, etc
Dug around through event viewer but didn't find anything that would be of assistance to what is going on.
Yesterday, I was able to boot up into safe mode fine and quickly. Checked around then, but didn't find anything. Rebooted again and same results getting into windows normally.
I am looking for any suggestions.. Thank you. In the meantime, I am going to bounce it again and go into safe mode and see if I can run windows updates from safe mode.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions. This is my backup server so I need to get my backups running again...
