Hi, I have three sites connected via Sonicwall VPN. Site A hosts 3 Domain Controllers (1 x 2008 and 2 x 2003). Site B and Site C, each have their own Domain Controller (each on 2003). All sites replicate to the same domain and forest. Recently, one of the original domain controllers in Site A went down and would not come back up. So I officially seized the FSMO roles onto one of the other domain controllers in Site A and removed the dead domain controller from the domain. All Site A and B domain controllers are working fine.
However, Site C domain controller will no longer replicate. I checked Sites and Services/NTDS settings and confirmed that Site C was automatically replicating to the dead domain controller. When trying to manually replicate I get the below error. I also went into properties and can change to an active domain controller in site a but still get the same error. Unfortunately, this is has been an issue for over 30 days now.
Is there another way to reconnect this domain controller to the site a domain controllers? error1.png
