We have two domain controllers at a school and they were shut down for the summer. Now they have exceeded the tombstone limit or whatever and won't talk to each other or replicate. No workstations can access shares and even the DHCP on one DC isn't working and workstations can't even obtain IP addresses. I have tried everything and one error just leads to another one when I do anything with ntdsutil or repadmin. I've tried to remove lingering objects but get "DSA object not found" on the server I'm doing it on. So I have w2003server which had all the fsmo roles and w2003-teachers. Can somebody help to get these things talking to each other please?
P.S. In an effort to just remove AD from w2003-teachers, I seized the FSMO roles because the installation couldn't transfer stuff to w2003server but it still wouldn't let me uninstall AD so now both servers, while not talking, have all the fsmo roles. Prolly gonna have to deal with that once I get them back online.
