Hi

We are upgrading our wndows 2003 environment to Windows 2008 R2.
The prerequisites were completed successfully (adprep /forestprep, /domainprep, gpprep, /rodcprep) replication between all sites was 100% and the schema was upgraded to 47 without any problems.

After installing a Windows 2008 R2 server into the domain and running dcpromo to make the server the first 2008 R2 DC after completion of adding in the role there are errors in the Event log of the Active Directory Domain Service.
The initial replication will not complete because of a single object which looks to be related to our Nicelogger Database (phone monitoring server)

The error being received is below.
It points out that "The maximum size of an object has been exceeded".
Can i delete the object?
Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks

Hi,
please see Method 2 of the following Microsoft KB Article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914036
to see which attribute(s) of the object cause the problem and (at least temporary) needs to be shortened or completely removed.

Hi Alex

Thanks for the quick response.
The problem though is not replication between 2003 servers, this is all fine.
Its the new 2008 server that is not accepting the object in question for the initial replication for completion of a successful promotion to a DC.

The solution you have suggested is for and Event ID:2008 which suggests Exchange Recipient Update service errors and proxy addresses.  
The object in question is not a user account nor would it have any exchange features.
It is related to Nicelogger which is a telephone monitoring system which is also relatively old.
I have also opened a call with Nice and await a response from them on this.
I will keep this post updated as i find out more.

Once again thanks for your input
