NTDS ISAM 474 in event log - The database page read from the file "d:\directory\NTDS\ntds.dit at offset XYZ failed verification

Multiple 2003 servers with multiple DCs. This is occuring on one of them.

At the moment, server is up and running fine.

Best way to fix? Force AD replication to this server?

If I could fix with server reboot that would be best solution.

Thanks, so only need to do metadata cleanup you have to do /forceremoval? i.e. no need if dcpromo works without this option?
Mahesh

Yes, if dcpromo works smoothly, it will cleanup AD for removed server automatically and no need to run Metadata Cleanup

However if that fails, then you must use dcprpmo /forceremoval switch and then metadata cleanup is also mandatory
