Safe Mode – Directory Service Restore Mode
All though this does not apply to Windows 2000 Professional, we have included it for definition purposes. This is for the Windows 2000 Server operating system and is only used in restoring the SYSVOL directory and the Active Directory directory service on a domain controller.
The directory service included with Windows 2000 Server. It stores information about objects on a network and makes this information available to users and network administrators. Active Directory gives network users access to permitted resources anywhere on the network using a single logon process. It provides network administrators with an intuitive hierarchical view of the network and a single point of administration for all network objects.
