Hi guys,

Suddenly I've been having some problems with my active directory configuration, If I try to enter Active Directory sites and services it greets me with an error:

Data from Servers is not available from domaincontroller.domain

Operation Error

Try later or choose a different domain controller.

What could be causing this problem?

Hi

Did you have some replication link from the Root Domain to child domain which was demoted?

If so, look in adsiedit if there are remains that need to be deleted.

If you have demoted a Child domain, Sometimes you will face this issue,

You need to delete it from adsiedit.


if you not demoted Child domain, But if you are facing this isse,

There may be a chance of corruption of AD Database,

You need to perform Offline Defragmentation (Refer below link),
