The error reads:
Could not read the rood entry on directory <server.root.com> Cannot access configuration information. 'DC=DifferantDomainName,dc=root,dc=com'

What are causes for this message? I have changed the recipent polcy assigned domain controller and I keep getting this message. If I have to rebuild RUS which one? I dont understand this becuase the server described in the message is not a DC for the configuration information named.

Well, let's break down the error a little bit:

Events in the 8000's usually pertain to Netbios errors.

Since you are trying to access a folder, you may have a folder name that is not compatible with netbios...

I think there is a charactor limit to the number of charactors the netbios naming convention can translate. The folder you are trying to access, might have too long of a name.

I found the same as Roads but my infrastructure is a few years old. This did lead me to believe we are not as well connected as I was led to believe. Thank you for the help
