dcdiag errors, need to promote 03's in 2k environment


J

Jason

Hello,

Thanks in advance for any help. Here is the deal: One NT
DC that was at some point upgraded to 2000, it's name
is "Server1". I installed a second windows 2000 server
which was promoted to DC & GC named "Server2". Server1
had a hardware failure that prevented a graceful removal
from the domain. Add to this four 2003 servers that are
linked via VPN. They would like all of these to be able
to service logon requests, etc in case of connectivity
issues. Before I run the schema updates I'm assuming
dcdiag should look good. (Q278875)

I deleted remnants of the old server following Q216498,
obviously without full success even though no errors were
reported during the process. To tell you the truth, I
have never had pressing reasons to get too serious about
removing an orphaned server. Other than flunking this
test the server is operating normally. Actually there are
evt logs that complain obout the missing DC every 2 hours
(see at end of dcdiag output). I'm wondering also if this
could be related to the fact that the server is running in
mixed mode still. I almost changed to native but thought
I better back off and re-group first.

Thanks for reading this far...

Are all five FSMO roles being hosted?

On Server2? I assume failing the 5 tests below for
knowsroleholders means no? Forgive me, I have not had to
mess with this until now. Can these be transfered without
access to the old server (Server1)?

Thanks for helping.

Hello.

If the current owner of the FSMO role is offline and will not be returning
to the domain, you will need to seize the roles to an active server (such as
SERVER2):

Controller
