Hello,

I got an error when I ran dcdiag test.  Server01 is my master domain controller.
Fifteen days ago I had to create a clone of my master domain controller using VMWare.  The original domain controller was out.  Nothing was done to it.  Now I turn off the clone and return to use the original one.  I think AD is not updated.   See the error below.
I'm using Windows 2003 Server.

From Server02 to Server01
The replication generated an error (8606):
Insufficient attributes were given to create an object. This object may not exist because it may have been deleted and already garbage collected.

Did the clone run as a DC communicating with Server02 at any time while the real Server01 was offline?  If so, you can't do that.  You can't swap clones of DCs in and out like that as DCs need to keep many items in sync with eachother and when/if you put the old DC back online, it would have outdated information.  You could be suffering from something called USN rollback.  See this:
