help with removing old domain controller
Posted on 2013-01-22
Here is my situation. Replication is failing somewhere, I'm not sure where to fix it. I can run some dcdiag reports, but I'm not sure which ones to run. I can paste results here.
DC01old is a demoted Win2003 DC that is powered off and gone.
DC02old is a win2003 DC that is still active but I want to demote it
The 3 new DC's (DC01, DC02, DC03) are replicating with DC02old.
DC02old still shows DC01old in the ntds settings. This should not be there, I would assume.
I tried using ntdsutil to do some meta cleanup but it showed nothing to cleanup.
There is the option to right-click DC01old in ntds settings and Delete, but I dont want to screw anything up. For Site3/DC03 I did manually add DC01 and tried to replicate but getting the 'Naming context is in the process of being removed' error. Any ideas?? Thanks.
