Hi,


My DC is down so I reinstall Windows 2003.

During the process of metadata cleanup with NTDSUTIL I got err msg at the end when I did: remove selected server

I got this msg:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LDAP error 0x32(50 (Insufficient Rights).
Ldap extended error message is 00000005: SecErr: DSID-03151D15, problem 4003 (IN
SUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

Win32 error returned is 0x5(Access is denied.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now my problem I can't delete the DC in ADUC, it keeps telling me:

Access is denied.


If try to run metadata cleanup again it doesn't work because the server is not in site anymore. It seems the first metadata cleanup do the job but did not finish...

What can I do now?
