We have a customer with a failed domain. Investigating the logs, events went were as follows:
* Initially the domain had a single server 2003 r2 DC
* A new DC - windows server 2012r2 was later promoted & FSMO roles transferred over it
* The old DC was then turned off & physically destroyed before being demoted
* Server 2012r2 DC then rans with replication errors for next 150 days.
* On the 150th day, the new DC blue screened and then restarted,
* Since then event 14550 DfsSvc error is logged every 30 minutes on the new DC
I believe although the FSMO roles where migrated to new DC, SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares where never replicated.
I think we have 2 options :
1. Recreate Sysvol directory from scratch - losing GPOs and any logon Scripts.
2. Don't recover old domain/Migrate company to a new domain.
My question is, are there any better options available.
