Reconnecting a long before dissconnected DC

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Just today had a situation where we had some strange behaviour. Some users and OUs were not replicating. OK I go in do some diagnostics just to find out those are some two old DCs which had been brought back to life after like 4 months.

 The thing is their Tombstone time expired and now they were no good (if you know what I mean). It took some time and a whole lot of searching :)

 Here is the TechNet article on it.

P.S. I passed 70-298 my finall exam for the MCSE: Security :)
