  • failed test VerifyReplicas

    I get this error from dcdiag and I don't know how to fix it -

    The backgroud story: a dc had died, never to be replaced. another new dc was promoted, now there are 2 dc-s in the domain all records of the old dc was removed... or so I though.

    Removed the new dc. now only 1 dc.

    (used to have more problems with dcdiag - but fixed all but this

    here is the errors from dcdiag: - I am sorry for the long output:

    Starting test: VerifyReplicas
    This NC (DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=mydomain,DC=com) is supposed to be replicated to this server, but has not been replicated yet. This could be because the replica set changes haven't replicated here yet. If this problem persists, check replication of the Configuration Partition to this server.

    Do those application partitions exist on the DC that was not rebuilt ? Does it have DNS installed ?

      I'm not sure how to check it.
      I have now only one DC (demoted the other one) but I still have this error.
      I uninstalled the dns from the demoted DC so I have only 1 DNS now.

        You may need to do an AD cleanup to remove the demoted servers.

          Looks like lingering DNS application partitions:

          1) Make sure none of the DNS zones is configured as AD-integrated. If needed make those Primary zones.
          2) using ntdsutil issue the following commands:

          domain management
          connections
          connect to server <your DC name>
          q
          delete NC DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=mydomain,DC=com
          delete NC DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=mydomain,DC=com
          q
          q

          3) Restart DNS service
          4) in the DNS MMC, right-click the server and select "Create default application directory partitions"
          5) Make the zones AD-integrated
