Hey, guys, I am having a problem with SFC/Scannow saying it's not able to repair some files. This is on a Windows Server 2016. I have noticed some issues with Active Directory, like not being able to access the Advanced Menu option when you're adding someone or it not being able to find users when I check name when they are clearly in the active directory users.


I have a CBS Log here if someone can help me out? I am unsure how to proceed on this one ... maybe a DISM.exe /Online / restorehealth type deal?

Try it.

It might help---


Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


Then sfc /scannow.


edit--- Dism hangs on 20% for a while usually. It will finish.

Learn to take screenshots & add them to your posts. :thumbup2:


Learn to use Google Search.  :busy:

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.

1. Make sure you have a current image/system state backup before any fixes.


2. Is the server physical or virtualized?


3. Is it the only DC?


4. Can you install the RSAT tools on another machine to work around issue?
