  • Warning: DcGetDcName(PDC_REQUIRED) call failed, error 1355

    I would like to ask for help in the title problem. Unfortunately, the mission expanded beyond me.
    2 DC was in the domain, of which one was destroyed, and has been force removed.
    Since then, there is no PDC.

    Now, I have only one error in event viewer :

    Every mistake I could've fixed (DNA, W32time, KDC, WINS etc), but there is still no PDC.

    I included the *.txt logs are compressed, as it would be a very long post:
    NLTEST, dcdiag, netdiag, repadmin, Gpotool, nslookup.

    If anyone has any ideas, I would welcome.
    Thank you!

    Use NTDSUTIL to seize all 5 FSMOs on the surviving DC:

    (oh, also tell us your DC OS and both domain and forest FLs)

        Looks as if you've moved them OK
        See if the messages disappear

        Also make sure you've done a metadata cleanup to remove all traces of the failed DC:

                    Hi,

                    what does netdom query fsmo shows?
                    Which server in dns adversting pdc service
                    forward lookup zone > _msdcs > pdc > _tcp

                    Although you have performed meta data clean up . I would suggest you to go thru this article once more. There references in DS, DNS, that needs to be remoted too.
