DC Replication.

Hi,

I recently demoted a W3K DC from our domain, when I use the repadmin
/showrepl /v command it's still attempting to sync with the demoted DC.

The demoted server does not exist on the domain (account deleted) the DNS
entrys for the DC have been removed as part of the DCPROMO. The DCPROMO did
not report any errors.

Is there any way to remove this object (ADSIEDIT, LDP)

REPLMON errors

domain:

Domain Controller Name: ARCTIC
Directory Partition: DC=test,DC=com,DC=au
Replication Partner: **DELETED SERVER #1
Failure Code: 8524
Failure Reason: The DSA operation is unable to
proceed because of a DNS lookup failure.

ideas?

You have to clean the DC object from within the ADSI edit and also make sure
you have no other refernence of it anywhere else ie. DNS, ADSS, comp acct
etc.

To clean it from ADSI, open an Mmc , click add /remove , click add adsiedit
and close. Now you have adsi editor open, expand the configuration partition
, expand OU=dc,dc=companyname,dc=com , underneath that you should see a
container for domain controllers. in the right pane, select the demoted DC
and delete it.

Jim,

But he needs to install the Support Tools for that wonderful little utility
to be available! Or download it from the MS Web site....

Yes. Or at least an option in Configure your Server or a shortcut to the
installation from within admin tools...

Guys,

Thanks for the responses to my problem.

The object was already removed from AD, it was not there to delete using
ADSIEDT. Is there a cleanup process that runs in AD to removed marked
"deleted" objects, I read somewhere it runs every two days?

Thanks again

Forget the option. Good thought but too many people do not know about the
Support Tools as it is. They need to be included by default! These tools
are simply too powerful and useful to be left to chance. And you know how
it is: there is a problem and you really need netdiag but part of the
problem is that you can not reach the Internet to download and you lent the
Service Pack CD to your mother so that she could do something on her home
computer.....
