  • AD DC crashes needed reinstall

    Ok,
    So we had a major event happen at my company the other day and one of our DC crashed hard both disks in the Raid 1 were no good. I was able to bring the Server up and transfer the FSMO Roles to out Second DC. I was also able to do a dcpromo and demote the server. This Server was a DC and DNS for our company which has only 2 Servers. The second is a DC, DNS and DHCP server and was working fine. I was unable to save the installation and decided to do a re-installation of the Server. Hence the demotion of the DC since I was planning on keeping the same name. I reinstalled and ran all my updates along with doing a DCPromo and eventually installing DNS (The zone is AD Integrated). I am noticing in the logs these 2 Warnings:

    The original install had a a single drive with 2 small partitions. I decided to make the install with a single C:\ drive. There is no d:\ drive like before. Looking at the first Warning I am noticing the d:\nt\com\complus\dtc\dtc\adme\uiname.cpp:9351 Not sure if this is a cause of my problem. Any help would be appreciated as I do not want to have any further issues.
