Domain Controller not working After P2V to LAB
Posted on 2012-03-20
We have a strange scenario where we P2V'ed a domain controller to an isolated lab environment, after it was successfully migrated, i was able to log in the domain controller using my login name, but can't create any objects, nor can i join computers to that domain in that lab environment.
i seized the RID, PDC, Scheme master and domain naming master roles but still no good.
i'm getting - the directory service was unable to allocate a relative identifier
i'm suspecting that there's a problem with the RID, and saw some information on the web that i should clean all the remaining servers that the domain controller previously connected with (including all the sites) but i fail to understand if it's even related and if so, then why would it solve the problem?
the domain is 2003 native
