Domain server Issue
I m having 2 domain servers(DS-01A & DS-01B).Trying to replicate NTDS settings from domain1 im getting following error.
"The following error occured during the attempt to synchronize naming context host from doamin controller DS-01 A to domain controller DS-01B:
The destnation server is currently rejecting replication requests. The opeartion will not continue."
Please any one help to solve the issue.
Search the Windows Event logs eg the Active Directory Replication log for errors and warnings around the time you have replication problems. Some of the events have VERY descriptive texts giving direct advice on how to repair/resolve.
Also, try running a domain controller diagnostics:
C:\> dcdiag /a
Then use Google and search for hints on the warnings you got from the above, eg
There are many reasons to why replication break down:
- DNS problems
- Secure Channel Password expiry
- Tombstone Lifetime expiry
- USN Rollback
Many of these may happen due to improper use of drive imaging or virtual machine snapshots. Care must be taken when backing up or restoring a domain controller.
Each of the above causes have tons of threads on Internet describing various recovery procedures.
A last, but powerful option could be to forcively demote one of the DCs (the troublemaker), clean metadata and then promote it again. This is very well described by Microsoft in their support forums and in KB articles.
