[WARNING] Cannot find DC in domain 'domain1'. [ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN]

A customer's server has been having replication problems for a while, I noticed that thefRSRootPath and the fRSStagingPath were pointing to an incorrect area on the server, I edited these areas using ADSIedit but it looks like this has caused more damage as I am now unable to locate the domain controller as a domain controller.

Before I did this amendment the netdiag passed all tests.

I have the output from netdiag below which shows the problems.

I think you better roll this system back then.  Something is now missing that the system cannot find the domain partition.

Is WINS set up properly?  I would check their first and see what it is pointing to on both machines. Just a guess...

Did you perform a backup before you made your changes?

jacassAuthor Commented:
Yes, I have a AD backup and an image. I can go back to these if needed, however I am working remotly atm so I dont have access to them.

If I could get this sorted remotly it would save me a lot of time.

I am at the moment making a microsoft backup on a VMware version of the server, it is around 1 week old but should do if I cant fix it.

Is there another DC running dns that you can point this server to for name resolution?
