SBS 2003 in journal wrap
Posted on 2013-10-22
I have inherited an SBS 2003 domain with a few issues. I am about to install a new SBS 2011 server in migration mode but need to resolve a few issues first.
The SBS is reporting that it is in journal wrap mode: Event ID 13568
There was once a "backup server" that they used but it failed, leaving the system in a state where NTFRS could no longer replicate. Apparently this happened around 5 years ago.
I've seen this situation before and successfully recovered from it, but I expected to also see the tombstone event in the logs.
So I'm approaching this with caution.
What's the best way to recover from this?
