Inherited a domain.
I have 3 Windows 2012 controllers. 2 have been around for some time. I recently added to see if I could figure out the problem. Functional level of the domain is Windows 2008
DC1 has netlogon and sysvol shares. Shows it has been in journal wrap probably for a year. Holds all FSMO roles.
DC2 no shares. Has not be replicating for over a year.
DC3 (new) no shares. Cant sync either.
DC1 clearly holds the keys to the kingdom and if it goes offline, we have issues.
Can I safely perform the D4 authoritative restore on DC1 and then do I do a D2 on the others? Not sure of the process here since there appears to be a total lack of replication on the secondary controllers.
