I have 2 windows 2003 servers, both are domain controllers, our main DC (server1) with all the master roles is a file and print server, our secondary DC (server2) is an exchange 2003 server.
We ghosted server1 as we were doing some changes to it, we ended up having to ghost it back to the original image. Now our 2 DC's will not sync and have stopped communicating as server2 has a higher replication number, now the exchange services will not start. I had a veritas backup of the system state of server1 so i tried doing an authorative restore hoping that would then force server2 to accept it but server2 will not sync.
Is there any way i can get this working again, i would just dc promo the exchange server down and manually remove it from AD so its just a member server but i am worried exchange will not work after.
