I have a domain controller in brach office that has not replicated in > 60 days. I have corrected site link errors but replication still will not occur and it seems that the only solution is to demote and re-promote the DC.
The problem is that there may be user and computer accounts on this DC that we do not wnat to lose. My reading on this subject suggests that DCPROMO will seek to replicate any changes before demoting, but since replication is the problem to begin with, I have to assume that this won't be possible.
Is there a way to fix this issue without demoting the DC or at else demote the DC without losing the user and computer accounts?
