Hi guys!

I have DC in the Head Office (Windows 2003 Std) and a child dc in a satellite office (Windows 2003 Std).

I have a replication error is Replmon:

insufficient attributes were given to create an object. this object may not
exist because it may have been deleted and restored.

Any idea how to fix this???

Thanks

I'm guesing that when you restored you have a mismatch in security, the restored server now has a different set of attributes.

Which server was restored, the head office or satellite office?   Was the restored server the first server?

If yes, then you might have FSMO issues and need to do a "seize" of the FSMO roles, so this question is important.

No; it's not the case...

This is the information is Replmon.  The two USN are different; is it normal?

Status as of: 2006-11-29 3:45:57 PM
Server has seen all changes for this directory partition through USN:  406986
Status as of: 2006-11-29 3:45:57 PMServer is current through Property Update USN: 406955
Replication Failure:  Changes have not been successfully replicated from DC-22 for 4232 attempts
Replication Failure:  The Reason is: insufficient attributes were given to create an object. this object may not
exist because it may have been deleted and restored.

Of course thats not normal as there are failures.

How about doing a demotion and after that look for any errors in the event log (are there any at the moment??). If all seems to be ok promote the server again. But before make sure all FSMO roles are off the server and moved to another DC.

Do I really need to demote the Domain Controller at the satellite office...???

There must be a way to do that with the active directory edit tool?

demoting isn't complex or difficult.  Given the status of your current configuration I believe you have to do what you have to do.

No, this cannot be done in ADSI edit. But it is straight forward. Just specify that this is not the last DC in your domain when running dcpromo.
