  • Ran dcgpofix /target:both with Exchange and SMS

    We were having serious trouble with GPOs on our domain and decided to run dcgpofix /target:both to see if resetting things to default would work. Unfortunately this seems to have created other issues in the domain. I am told the the exchange and SMS servers are now behaving strangely and I have notice that replication to the controller that the command was run on is now not working.

    Does anyone know what changes I'd need to make to get replicatino working again.

    Before runnnig and change anything please give a full description on the problems, error messages and the environment.

    One of the first thing that you will need to check if there backup software/SMS etc. on DC is right like "Log on Local", "Logon as Service", "Log on as operating system" etc. - They information includes in the manufacturer docs.

    Also, use GPMC to backup the GPO:
