  • Trying to get DC going after being off 3 months

    Hello all,

    We have recently moved a DC that had been disconnected back into a remote office; probably not surprisingly, it is having a tough time replicating. Network connectivity doesn't seem to be an issue and from what I can tell, name resolution seems to be working between this dc and the other office.

    I've attached the log from dcdiag on the server. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Decommission this server and commission a new DC.

      To elaborate, the DC has probably been tombstoned so the main AD has decided it is dead
      As Joe said, decommission (format etc and do a metadata cleanup) and build a new DC, preferably with a different name

        You can unTombstone it.

        Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\NTDS\Parameters]
        "Allow Replication With Divergent and Corrupt Partner"=dword:00000001

        Don't forget to change it back once it is back replicating.

        Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\NTDS\Parameters]
        "Allow Replication With Divergent and Corrupt Partner"=dword:00000000
