Server 1 is the Operations Master for our domain. Recently Server 2 was introduced and stored a copy of Active Directory. Server 1 was taken offline for a while. 40+ computers were then added to the domain via Server 2. Then Server 1 was brought back online and replication will not occur. I have used the Repamin tool to verify that the reason the servers will not synchronize is because Server 2 has reached the tombstone period and cannot be synchronized.
Can anyone tell me how I can sync these servers back together without haveing to demote Server 2, lose all of the computer accounts and have to join Server 2 and the 40+ computers back to the domain.
