DC2 is your PDC, (previusly you BDC, but promoted to PDC when DC1 was removed from the network)
Right?
You do exactly the same as you did before:
Crank you old DC1 on the network, and force it to be the PDC again, at the same time your DC2 will demote to BDC once again.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????



    In your case, one systemadministrator to another systemadministrator??????????????????

In Windows 7, items put in the print queue at home won't print when I get to the office.


I don't see how this can be done, because there are 2 different print queues in question. Not to mention the lag and buffer required by the printer. So when you disconnect communication the job hangs.

Besides the spooler at work my lie on a dedicated print server, especially if the printer is on a network and and not attached directly to you PC.

VMWare Clustering with Veeam or just replication


There are several advantages of clustering, as you stated, ease of server environment replication is one of these advantages. There are several others, instant fail-over replacement, swaping from one machine to the other for hardware / software maintentance / upgrades with little to no downtime during the proceedures, shared access to similar content / configurations, there are many many reasons to cluster.

you may also look into ESXi:

VMware ESXi is the easiest way to get started withvirtualization—and it’s free. Consolidate your applications onto fewerservers and start saving money through reduced hardware, power, coolingand administration costs.

We recently experienced a power outage and unable to log ont


Hi,
In most cases you just have to reset your modem and/or router, to do this just unplug the modem for the mains for 2 minutes, plug it back in and wait another 2 minutes for it to settle down, then you can try to reconnect to the server.

Logon issue in a domain trust - Win 2003


Are you logging in through terminal services? If so you need to give the user "allow logon through terminal services" permission in group policy.

Otherwise you need to give the user "allow logon locally" permission on the domain controller.

Windows XP Media Center stopped working


Seems like a virus or spyware on the computer:
Uninstall any existing security program like norton or mcafee by using their removal tools from http://pcsafety.us/
from the same site download and run AVG antivirus free, Super Antispyware - update and perform a complete scan on all the drives.

If these dont work you need to run combofix but that may crash your pc so keep it as a last resort.

You can take it to geek squad but they wond do all this they will simply format your harddrive and you lose all your data.

Hope this helped!
Rate this fix if it worked'

Hi

You are not given a full information in your question, maximum replication problems comes with DNS and Group Policies. If you have any previous System state Backups, restore in both the servers. i think it will resolve your problem. Next time any problem comes give full specifications.

The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR.


Make sure and keep copies of all the folders and files.
Take these actions to resolve your problem:
On all Active Directory registered domain controllers:
1. Stop NETLOGON Service
2. Stop File Replication Service (NTFRS)
On the PDC Emulator:
1. Rename all files in the %systemroot%\ntfrs folder and subfolders (change their extension to .old).
2. Give an unlisted account full control of the directory %systemroot%\SYSVOL folder and reset permissions on all child objects.
3. Change the registry key:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ntfrs\paramaters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup\BurFlags (REG_DWORD) = D4 (The default on this is 0)
4. Start the NETLOGON Service
5. Start the NTFRS Service
On all non-PDC emulators:
1. Change the registry key:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ntfrs\paramaters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup\BurFlags (REG_DWORD) = D2
2. Start the NETLOGON Service
3. Start the File Replication Service (NTFRS)
At this point, the system in question should have recreated the SYSVOL share and the NETLOGON share. Check this by running 'net share' from a command prompt. You should also see the Group Policy Objects listed in the SYSVOL directory as:
%systemroot%\SYSVOL\domain_name\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}
%systemroot%\SYSVOL\domain_name\Policies\{6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}
There may be more directories listed here, but these are the Default Domain Policy and the Default Domain Controllers Policy that are installed by default when the Active Directory is created. If these are being replicated, then file replication is functioning.
If you cannot find these directories, then you may have to manually recreate them. Here is a list of the proper directory structure of the %systemroot%\SYSVOL folder:
\SYSVOL
________\domain
________________\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory
________________\Policies
________________\Scripts
________\scripts
________\staging
________\staging areas
________________\domain_name
________\sysvol (shared as SYSVOL)
________________\domain_name
________________________\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory
________________________\Policies
________________________\Scripts (shared as NETLOGON)
If you have to manually recreate the directories, restart the File Replication Service (NTFRS) on all domain controllers to re-enable replication. This should get the file replication functioning normally

What is replication


replication is just having a copy of your data. Replication is a constant or daily activity...not once a month. It allows you to have a backup plan should your primary plan fail. I am sure there is more technical explanations, but that is basically it. What r u trying 2 do?
