Replication connection

Hi,

A few days ago I demoted a DC and removed it from the domain. Everything
seemed to go OK, but repadmin /showreps still shows a connection object for
the old DC. The server does not appear in ADSS or anywhere else.

Marin,

Thanks for the reply. I have already run metaedit etc. The DC does not
appear anywhere now, but is still listed in the repadmin /showreps. The
connection has DEL: in front of the guid.

Try running replmon.exe, connect to a server, right-click the server and
select "generate status report" .....open the log file you created with this
step with notepad, and seracch for "Enterprise Data".... look for the server
name under one of the sites... if it is in there, you may have to run
adsiedit.msc and connect to the configuration container tab, browse down to
sites, and remove it from there...

also, open adsiedit.msc, go to DomainNC, open system, open File Replication
Service, and open Domain System Volume....see if the server is listed in
there....

Using ADSIedit I cannot see the deleted server (MS1C) in any container, nor
anything related to the "DELETED SERVER" entries above.
