Removing Failed AD 2008 DC
Posted on 2014-01-16
Server 2008 DC in a 2003 Domain. (schema upgraded) three x DC
One of my servers failed after a single drive died in a raid 6+hotspare. HP will be replacing the raid card once I have cleaned up the mess.
After the raid rebuild with a new drive, the only thing at the time that was broke was the certificate services store was corrupt. Email (exchange 2010) was still running fine.
All mailboxes were moved to a new server and now in the process of cleaning up.
DCpromo fails as it requires AD Cert Services to be removed first, but Cert services can not be removed due to error
Attempt to un-install Certification Authority failed with error code 0x80073712. The component store has been corrupted
I get a similar error when I try to remove DNS
Attempt to un-install DNS Server failed with error code 0x80073712. The component store has been corrupted
Additionally, I can not remove the Exchange services from this server as it says it can not find itself as a DC. It can reach and communicate with two other DC but seems to only worry about locating itself.
Any clues as to the best way forward with this?
