Sub domain no longer around
Posted on 2005-04-12
Here is the situation:
DC for blah.local is having issues because it cannot communicate with a DC from a subdomain called sub.blah.local. That server was moved to another location and now communication between the two is much more limited. Users report strange connectivity issues on both sides since they seem to not communicate well. Both servers are Win 2K, SP4, all patched up nicely.
My temporary fix was to move the users that are on sub.blah.local domain controller to another DC that has no part in this AD structure and their connectivity problems have dissapeared but I still have a server generating a ton of errors in the System log.
Same thing applies to blah.local, who cannot communicate with sub.blah.local. However, users there have no other domain to fall back to and they seem to have more problems with Exchange shutting down services every so often more than communication problems.
Should I remove the sub server from AD Site and Services, should I remove any trust relationships among the two, or what should I do?
