Hello we have an updated SBS 2011 server running in a VM on ESX.
Recently there was a power outage and when rebooting the server is stuck at "applying computer settings".
I have rebooted in safe mode and checked the logs but couldn't find something that said clearly there is an error.
- IPV6 is enabled in DHCP like always, no change to this (because there are many comments linked to disabled IPV6 adapters)
- When trying to check the DNS server in safe mode, the console doesnt connect to it. Not sure if it should in safe mode.
- When booting with the network adapter off, the server starts normally but then I cannot restart the interface in Windows. The network control panel just freezes.
I cannot revert to a backup because the backup failed without a notice since a few weeks.
Any ideas please, this is unfortunately fairly urgent.
