  • NEED HELP!!! win2k SER problem with RID Master FSMO...

    I have following situation:

    On my network I have two win2k DC and one of them was RID Master FSMO. Because of some problems on DC that held RID Master FSMO role, I was forced to backup and restore him.

    But, after restoring, I receive event ID 16650 error in NTDS system log every two minutes:

    "The account-identifier allocator failed to initialize properly. The record data contains the NT error code that caused the failure. Windows 2000 may retry the initialization until it succeeds; until that time, account creation will be denied on this Domain Controller. Please look for other SAM event logs that may indicate the exact reason for the failure. "

    I have checked in AD and restored DC still have RID Master FSMO role (according to AD) but for some reason he acts like he haven't. Also, I can't create any new user or computer account on that DC.

    It looks like the other DC has received RID Master FSMO role during restoring and now old PDC can't take back Master role.

    Can someone help or give me an advice?

    Thanks in advance.
