PDC Is not replicating !!

Guest

Hi there,
I have been trying to sort out this issue since last week.

Here is my scenerio. After I have ghosted my PDC and BDC server and load it
in to my new server. After rebooted my new server the replication is not
running at all.

I wil not able to browse the server host name but Im able to browse the PDC
Via IPaddress
Error: \\server01 is not accessible
Logon Failure: The targer account name is incorrect


I have issue command repadmin / showrep

Ghosting can be tricky unless done correctly. Let me understand what you are
saying, Did you ghost two Windows 2000 domain controllers and stored the
image somewhere and then put those images on those two new servers? Or did
you Ghost one of them over?

If so, are these two new servers on the same network as the original domain
controllers? If so, are all four up and running on the same network? If so,
did you change the IP addresses of the servers you ghosted over too?

Or are they in a separate test or lab network? Or are they replacement
servers? If replacement servers, did you take the original ones offline?

If both servers have been ghosted over, then I am to assume at least one of
them is running DNS. If on a test network away from the production network,
make sure you are pointing to the domain controller that has DNS installed
on it for it's DNS IP address in the network card properties.

Browsing is based on NetBIOS functionality and not DNS. Curious, can you
ping the servers by their FQDN (server01.server.dr and server02.server.dr)?

I'm glad you believe you fixed the issue, but the above error is evident

Can you answer my previous questions so I can understand exactly what you
did?

Can you also provide an unedited ipconfig /all from both machines please?

Thanks

Hi Ace,
Do you have a messenger on?

Here are the step I have done.

1. Ghosted 2 domain controller from HP DL320 G2 to G3 Server.
2. Manage to change the Driver issue to boot the server.
3. IP address all remain the same.
4. Istall rollup service pack 1
5. I manage to ping each other with IP address and hostname.

Basically I have check all ipconfig /all. Everything is normal. However
when my BDC try to browse the PDC via hostname. It come out error message.

you have been caught by the USN rollback problem!

Read more at:
MS-KBQ875495_How to detect and recover from a USN rollback in Windows
Server 2003

MS-KBQ885875_How to detect and recover from a USN rollback in Windows
2000 Server

Windows 2000/2003 DCs should NEVER, NEVER, NEVER be imaged for
backup/restore purposes! Imaging is NOT AD aware backup/restore
solution and thus not MS approoved!
A W2K3 pre-SP1 hotfix, a W2K post-SP4 hotfix and W2K3 SP1 will stop
DCs replicating by disabling replication when USN rollback is
detected. As I know the detection is not guaranteed, but when it
detects it does that to prevent further damage.

I assume you first shutdown one DC, images that one, brought it up
again, shutdown the other DC, imaged that one and brought it up again.
And afterwards you restored the images. Is that correct?

The kb articles contain the solution and in your case (if you have 2
DCs) it means demoting one of the DCs, cleaning up metadata and
promoting it again to a DC. At least if this is your production
environment!

If you used imaging to copy your production environment into a lab
environment follow the following procedure. Be aware to use this at
your own risk, do not use it in a production environment as a
backup/restore procedure:
* Shutdown ALL the DCs at the same time in the production environment
* Image ALL the DCs
* Start ALL the DCs after all imaging has been done
* Copy the images of the DCs to the lab network
* Restore the images of the DCs on the lab network to its
corresponding hardware
* Do NOT connect the lab network with the production network
* Be aware that SID issues might occur is old images are used for the
DCs (meaning that a certain does not yet exist in the domain while it
has already been used in some ACL on another server)

AGAIN:
* be carefull with what you do and use this at your own risk!!!
* DO NOT USE THIS FOR YOUR PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT AS A BACKUP AND
RESTORE PROCEDURE!!!

Basically I have check all ipconfig /all. Everything is normal.
However when my BDC try to browse the PDC via hostname. It come out
error message.

Check Jorge's post. I tend to agree with Jorge that it's a USN issue because
of the way you probably ghosted it, and/or the new servers are on the same
network as the original servers (which you can't do).

I'm Sorry, Im just getting a lil confuse.
Currently I have 29 DC and 2 dc is the main DC for the rest of the DC to
connect as trusted domain. Basically the 27 DC is trusted the 2 main DC which
having some problem.

I really have no idea how and what is the safe way to tackle the problem.
I really need step by step advice. I cant afford to screw up either one
server on the replication DC. I have ACE server installed.

Time: 11:52:09
User: N/A
Computer:SERVER01
Description:
The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling
replication from
SERVER02 to SERVER01 for c:winntsysvoldomain using the DNS
name
server02.server.dr. FRS will keep retrying.
Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.


[1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name
server02.server.dr from this
computer.
[2] FRS is not running on server02.server.dr.
[3] The topology information in the Active Directory for this
replica has
not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.

This event log message will appear once per connection, After
the problem
is fixed you will see another event log message indicating
that the
connection has been established.

you have been caught by the USN rollback problem!

MS-KBQ885875_How to detect and recover from a USN rollback in Windows
2000 Server

Windows 2000/2003 DCs should NEVER, NEVER, NEVER be imaged for
backup/restore purposes! Imaging is NOT AD aware backup/restore
solution and thus not MS approoved!
A W2K3 pre-SP1 hotfix, a W2K post-SP4 hotfix and W2K3 SP1 will stop
DCs replicating by disabling replication when USN rollback is
detected. As I know the detection is not guaranteed, but when it
detects it does that to prevent further damage.

I assume you first shutdown one DC, images that one, brought it up
again, shutdown the other DC, imaged that one and brought it up again.
And afterwards you restored the images. Is that correct?

The kb articles contain the solution and in your case (if you have 2
DCs) it means demoting one of the DCs, cleaning up metadata and
promoting it again to a DC. At least if this is your production
environment!

If you used imaging to copy your production environment into a lab
environment follow the following procedure. Be aware to use this at
your own risk, do not use it in a production environment as a
backup/restore procedure:
* Shutdown ALL the DCs at the same time in the production environment
* Image ALL the DCs
* Start ALL the DCs after all imaging has been done
* Copy the images of the DCs to the lab network
* Restore the images of the DCs on the lab network to its
corresponding hardware
* Do NOT connect the lab network with the production network
* Be aware that SID issues might occur is old images are used for the
DCs (meaning that a certain does not yet exist in the domain while it
has already been used in some ACL on another server)

AGAIN:
* be carefull with what you do and use this at your own risk!!!
* DO NOT USE THIS FOR YOUR PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT AS A BACKUP AND
RESTORE PROCEDURE!!!

I'm Sorry, Im just getting a lil confuse.
Currently I have 29 DC and 2 dc is the main DC for the rest of the DC
to connect as trusted domain. Basically the 27 DC is trusted the 2
main DC which having some problem.

I really have no idea how and what is the safe way to tackle the
problem.
I really need step by step advice. I cant afford to screw up either
one server on the replication DC. I have ACE server installed.

Interesting. You have a total of 29 DCs in your domain. If you are only
ghosting two of them for a test/lab network (assuming totally off the
production network), and you followed the steps the Jorge layed out to ghost
them, then you have more work to do. You will need to also perform a
metadata cleanup to remove the other 27 DCs that will NOT be on the test/lab
network. AD will still have them referenced in the ghosted DCs to replicate
to, because AD believes they still exist.

Here's how to perform a metadata cleanup to remove the other 27 DCs from the
test/lab DCs that you ghosted. You will need to delete them one at a time.
