Dear Sir,

I have a Primary DC and secondary replica DC. Win 2003 Server.
Everything was running ok.
I have formated my 6 TS servers and trying to join them again to my domain.
I have deleted the computer names from the AD.
The problem is that I have been able to join only 4 of them and the rest I cannot.
Please find attached my event errors.

Kindly any assistance from your side will be appreciated!

Thank You!

It loks like you have some problem with your DNS. Are your DNS zones active directory integrated?
Have you tried rebooting the DC's? Is replication working correctly between the DC's?
What order are the DNS servers set to on the DC's and on the TS servers?
It looks like the reverse dns zones are not active directory integrated. Is this correct?

Thank you for the reply InteraX.

Yes, I have tried rebooting the DCs! same problem.
How can I check if the replication is wokring correctly between DCs? Guide me step by step please...
I feel it's not working proprely, because I have turned off the primary DC wish is holding the 5 FSMO roles, after turing off the primary DC, I cannot access anymore...

Regarding the reverse dns zone (active directory integrated), I will chek for you because I'm in a different site now, I'll get back to you as soon as I have full information...

Please stay tune.

Thank You,

So, Both DC's are 2003? The easiest way to check replication is by using replmon. This is not available in 2008.

Details on this can be found at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772954(WS.10).aspx and the UI at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc784128(WS.10).aspx

Is the primary still off? Why was this switched off? DNS replication for ADI zones happens as part of AD replication. They should be visible as an AD partition when looking at replmon.

What are the DNS settings in the IP stack of the DC servers?
