I spent part of my Easter rebuilding a file and print server that suffered from hardware problems that have now been resolved.
Incidently this is the same box that I rebuilt two months ago....due to issues with the backup process.
After the hardware was fixed, the backup and restore processes work fault-lessly. The only issue I had was resetting the machine account on the restored DC....KB288167. (this is fine now)
However after more log checking, I get a warning message on startup in the log, event id 5721, for which kb 257623 refers to...
- may have to apply the following as well...
[though it looks to be for NT not 2000??]
Then possibly redo the following KB's 281485,256000,305837.. for a following repetitive event id of 1265 for KCC - which is a warning -
My research indicated the event id is ofr security templates for the DC group, I went to apply the following KB's:
1). 281485 Name Collision - nope not this...
2). 256000 Error messages after importing Basicdc.inf...
305837 DNS.."invalid credentials" error messages on Domain controller..
- interesting the error log for this process is giving me an error 13, but this is where I hit a brick wall...
So if I need to resolve the event id 5721 as it is first, and event id 1265 depends upon it??
Not overly concerned yet, they are warnings and users can use the server - just further research and a fix or two during my next maintenaince window for this server.
- well I know already how next weekend is panning out...
- Okay, has anyone done anything here with this type of problem before??
Any suggestions or comments would be most welcome please.
