Second domain controller crashed today and will not boot back up. How can I clean up active directory 2008r2??
Posted on 2013-09-25
It has been one of those days. Today I noticed a newly created mailbox had vanished and after some research I noticed that only or DC2 had the new active directory account in its ADUC. I tried to force replication but got errors, so I went ahead and rebooted DC2 and it never came back up. Now I am stuck with a bogus DC listed in my sites and services. I know this is not healthy and want to properly remove DC2, but it looks like it is shot and will never boot again. How can I clean up AD without actually having the server to demote? BTW this is not related to my other DC question I have out there. Like I said, it has been one of those days!!
