I've got an issue with a server running w2k3, I had 1 dedicated server and 2 virtualized servers. The Virtual Host crashed and I lost the two virtualized machines. The problem is that the Dedicated server wasn't fully a DC with GC. It appears that I've got the server up and running (mostly), the issue is that it won't advertize that it's a GC and it never creates the SYSVOL share. I ran DCDiag and the output is attached. In the Event viewer in the section for "File Replication Service" I'm getting the following warning on startup:
"File Replication Service is scanning the data in the system volume. Computer SERVER cannot become a domain controller until this process is complete. The system volume will then be shared as SYSVOL.
To check for the SYSVOL share, at the command prompt, type:
When File Replication Service completes the scanning process, the SYSVOL share will appear.
The initialization of the system volume can take some time. The time is dependent on the amount of data in the system volume.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp
and in the "Directory Service" Log I get the following Error:
"Active Directory was unable to establish a connection with the global catalog.
1355 The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
Active Directory Users and Computers, Sites and Services, and Domains and Trusts all are working on this server and I can edit the items. But the Group Policy Managment Console can't find a DC to connect to.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
