SBS 2011 ADWS crashing

Hi all,

I have an SBS 2011 migrated from SBS 2003 via Swing Migration.  We had a UPS go bad and did not have a graceful shutdown.  We are now getting ADWS event 1400 but no 1401.  I did get the 1401 previously when I installed the GoDaddy UCC cert.  Can anyone tell me how to fix this?  It has been crashing ADWS and we have to restart daily.  Thanks!

Tom

Hello IslandTom,

I recomend to use native diagnostic tools at first:
1, fix my network wizard
2, SBS best practices analyzer
3, health scanner
4, netdiag from support tools (run as admin)

Let us know if any errors..


Regards,
Jarda

Jarda, Thanks I am running.  Rusty, I have read this but am not sure how to fix it.  

DCDiag test returned NCSecDesc NT Authority\Enterprise Domain Controllers doesn't have replication directory changes in filtered set, DC Forest DNS Zones and DC-Domain Zones.

Thanks.

Please proceed with your troubleshooting , however regarding deploying  an MS Enterprise PKI, by getting a Domain Controller certificate through auto-enrolment can be achieved as per the following article. These article are lengthy one so while doing troubleshooting you can go through it and if you want to follow do have a backup and then proceed :-

Thanks for the comments all.  I have a case going with MS critical down.  I'll let you know how it goes.  The "episodes" begin with ADWS Instance event 1206, ADWS was unable to determine if the computer is a global catalog server.  Followed by that repeating event a few times.  Next DNS 4016, 4015, 4004.  I've been restarting ADWS and DNS Server services almost hourly to keep the users going.

Looks like it was a faulty external modem was causing the issue.  It was connected, but was not set to send or receive.  It was on a line that was used for outgoing, but was given to some external senders.  Whenever it rang, ADWS crashed.  Got to love stupid technology tricks.  Hope this helps someone in the future.  Look for it in the next patch Tuesday.
