How do I remove SBS 2003 server and promote Server 2003 to have Active Directory
Posted on 2009-04-24
I have a domain with a SBS 2003 server and a Enterprise Server 2003 that will not become an Active Directory Server.
I need to remove the old SBS 2003 server from the domain, and the only thing that looks like stopping me demoting/removing the SBS2003 box is the the SYSVOL is not shared or populated.
In the event logs I get this;
NTFRS event id 13549
The File Replication Service is unable to replicate from a partner computer because the event time associated with the file to be replicated is too far into the future. It is 30 minutes greater than the current time. This can happen if the system time on the partner computer was set incorrectly when the file was created or updated. To preserve the integrity of the replica set this file update will not be performed or propagated further.
The file name is: "Policies"
The connection to the partner computer is:
"DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)\DMC-SERVER\C1D1A4A1-C4F8-4740-9E99-926545353BBA <- dmc\MELSERV02$ RemoteCxt"
Note: If this time difference is close to a multiple of 60 minutes then it is likely that this file may have been created or updated on the partner computer while the computer was set to the incorrect time zone when its computer time was initially set. Check that the timezone and time are correctly set on the partner computer.
Both servers are on the same time zone and time sync together.
I dcpromoted the Server 2003 box to remove active directory and then re dcpromo the server 2003 box and 10 minutes later I still get this.
How do I manually force the Server 2003 box to be have FSMO as I urgently need to do a SCHEMA master change for the email system.?
How to I just disconnect the SBS server and have an active directory on the 2003 SERVER?
What do I need to do if I turn off the SBS server and have Active Directory.?
