Error in the Event Log

I am running Windows2000Svr/Exchange2000/GFI ME/GroupShield5.2/ This is a Domain Controller DNS does not reside on this Server. When I go into Admin Tools Everthing relating to AD has no associate ie..the windows flag. Is there a way to get this back in check without demoting and promoting?

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      NtFrs
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      13559
Date:            9/2/2004
Time:            5:17:45 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      DC/exhange
Description:
The File Replication Service has detected that the replica root path has changed from "c:\winnt\sysvol\domain" to "c:\winnt\sysvol\domain". If this is an intentional move then a file with the name NTFRS_CMD_FILE_MOVE_ROOT needs to be created under the new root path.
This was detected for the following replica set:
    "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)"
 
Changing the replica root path is a two step process which is triggered by the creation of the NTFRS_CMD_FILE_MOVE_ROOT file.
 
 [1] At the first poll which will occur in 60 minutes this computer will be deleted from the replica set.
 [2] At the poll following the deletion this computer will be re-added to the replica set with the new root path. This re-addition will trigger a full tree sync for the replica set. At the end of the sync all the files will be at the new location. The files may or may not be deleted from the old location depending on whether they are needed or not.

I am running SP4 Windows2000 and Echange SP3

I had tried the info in the microsoft article and that didn't resolve the issue. Any other thoughts?

I would suggest manually moving the path, so that everything is updated properly. After that happens you can move it back, if you would like to keep the system stock.

I just ran NetDiag
 Domain membership test . . . . . . : Failed
    [WARNING] Ths system volume has not been completely replicated to the local
machine. This machine is not working properly as a DC.

DC Diag

 Starting test: frssysvol
    Error: No record of File Replication System, SYSVOL started.
    The Active Directory may be prevented from starting.

 Starting test: FsmoCheck
    Warning: DcGetDcName(GC_SERVER_REQUIRED) call failed, error 1355
    A Global Catalog Server could not be located - All GC's are down.
    ......................... pinnacle.shop4zero.com failed test FsmoCheck

Currently to work around this as my endusers were complaining about not recieving mail I had to change all Exhange Services to login locally. Made the DC with Exchange hold the Global Catalog and the other DC with DNS holds the Global Catalog.
 My question is which one should hold the GC or can both. I am going to try moving the path but want to make sure that I have all steps in place prior to starting this as if I don't then I may be rebuilding a few boxes, oh did I mention that this problem box is also the backup server.

Still waiting for a response to my last comment?

Sorry. My next response should have been to make it a Global Catalog. You did the right thing. If you have only two DC's then it is much safer to have them both be Global Catalogs. This would prevent users from not being able to log in when the Global Catalog goes down.

Apolgies ;)
