PDC - DC Sync error
Posted on 2016-10-31
Saw an error on a Terminal server (win 2012).
Event ID: 1058 - The processing of Group Policy failed
Checked the SYSVOL\domain\policies folder on the PDC and it was very outdated compared to the DC. (are one PDC and one DC)
Checked PDC- found this under Server manager - AD DS:
The DFS Replication service stopped replication on the folder with the following local path: C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain. This server has been disconnected from other partners for 325 days, which is longer than the time allowed by the MaxOfflineTimeInDays parameter (60). DFS Replication considers the data in this folder to be stale, and this server will not replicate the folder until this error is corrected.
To resume replication of this folder, use the DFS Management snap-in to remove this server from the replication group, and then add it back to the group. This causes the server to perform an initial synchronization task, which replaces the stale data with fresh data from other members of the replication group.
Error: 9061 (The replicated folder has been offline for too long.)
Replicated Folder Name: SYSVOL Share
Replicated Folder ID: 5FD9E88D-E92E-4097-B908-4BD018490764
Replication Group Name: Domain System Volume
Replication Group ID: 50FCAE6F-BD3C-4145-B8FF-7A0685ECFBF3
Member ID: 7832896E-76E7-457D-AC7A-BB3B960E66D6
Says to use the DFS management (?) to remove the server from replication group. Safe to do with a PDC?
Also saw that the PDC was set to use DC as first DNS server but not itself as nr 2. Changed that.
