My Win2003 PDC died and I need to get the backups off the NAS, but since the AD is totally gone, there is seemingly no way to authenticate when I try to connect via \\[IP]\share, etc.
I can get to it via HTTP or FTP, but they are both SLOW (FTP is only 51kb/sec on a gigabit network - I have no idea why) and in the case of HTTP the browser does not like it when I right-click on the image to download. It only saves part of the file.
Is there any way to temporarily change to Shared or User access to get the files? We plan to rebuild the PDC as soon as we can and then want to go back to domain security. If it can't be done temporarily, how big if a mess will this make with my permissions? For that matter, any way to speed up FTP?
Also, I've got old firmware - will newer firmware help with this issue?
