Replications Errors & Other errors
Posted on 2007-08-02
Ok, I am not sure how to construct this question, so I am just going to try and start from the beginning. **WARNING, this is going to be kind of long**
In the past I have had replication errors on my network that stemmed from the previous administrators lack of understanding of what he was doing. I had thought that my replication errors were fixed, however they have seemed to resurface with a vengance.
I have two Servers that affect this topic, and they are;
1.) ISSVR01 - SBS2003 Server
a.) Runs Exchange 2002
b.) Is the primary DNS Server
2.) ISSVR02 - Windows 2003 Server
a.) More less a file server
b.) Has a secondary DNS setup
This morning, after a week vacation, I came in to find that individuals were having problems logging in to certain applications as well as e-mail. So I immediately tried to connect to the main server (listed as number 1 above) via Unc "Start, Run, \\ISSVR01" and I get the error "\\issvr01 is not accessible. You might not have permissions to access this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have permissions. Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect."
So I immediately went to the server and noticed that it was riddled with event error logs. Under Directory Service there were two consistant errors 1358 and 1373, and there were a lot of these. There was also a 1988, which I had seen before and has to do with lingering objects. So I decided to take a stab at this first.
When I located the lingering object and tried to remove it, I got an error of "The Target principal name is incorrect"
I stumbled upon a few other sites that pointed me in some random directions, and one of the things I came across when trying to find help on this is that when I log in to Active Directory Users and Computers, right click on the server, and Choose Operations Master, it shows under operations master as "ERROR"
Does anyone have any suggestions, or where to start with correcting this issue. Please this is extremely frustrating.
