Replication between two sites where tombstoned greater than 60 days
Posted on 2009-05-17
I am in an awkward situation.
For the first time I am personally visiting a site that is set up as a child domain of our main domain.
The child is based in Australia.
I knew we had AD issues, but nothing quite like what I've walked in to.
issues I've found so far include:
- child domain Sites and Services showing incorrect data
- child domain not able to replicate with parent, or other child domain
Due to the size of the company, there is only 1 DC in the child domain. However I have a new server to install that I want to seize all DC roles onto, and maybe use the "current old" DC as a secondary.
This DC's event viewer is full of Event IDs 1084, 1926 and 1800.
DNS is setup as the following
Primary Zone AD
Child Domain = stub
Primary Zone AD
Parent Domain = stub
I can ping each DC from each other.
From child DC I can get to parent DC via \\servername and I can see and access shares.
From parent DC I can NOT get to child DC via \\servername, I get the error "No network provider accepted the given network path"
Sorry for the long post, and no doubt there will be more information dependent on the questions asked, I'm wondering if there is a way to force the replication so that everything from the parent DC overwrites the data on the child DC, except the site information, and then the correct site information from child replicates back to parent and overwrites any data on there.
Easier said than done I presume....
