I am trying to upgrade my domain controllers and I am having issues with the “adprep /rodcprep” command.
The error I receive is:
Adprep found partition DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=local, and is about to update the permissions.
Adprep could not contact a replica for partition DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=local.
Adprep encountered an LDAP error.
Error code: 0x0. Server extended error code: 0x0, Server error message: (null).
Adprep failed the operation on partition DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=local. Skipping to next partition.
If I try to connect to “DC=ForestDNSZones,DC=example,DC=local” using ADSI Edit I get the error:
A referral was returned from the server
If I attempt to run “cscript fixfsmo.vbs DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=local” based on support.microsoft.com/kb/949257 I get the error:
fixfsmo.vbs(19, 5) (null): The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
If I run the command:
ldifde -f Infra_ForestDNZSones.ldf -d “CN=Infrastructure,DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=local” -l fsmoroleowner
Connecting to “dc1.example.local”
Logging in as current user using SSPI
Exporting directory to file Infra_ForestDNZSones.ldf
Searching for entries…
Writing out entriesldap://ForestDnsZones.example.local/CN=Infrastructure,DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=local
No Entries found
The command has completed successfully
In DNS I do not see a folder for ForestDNSZones and I am unable to create this partition as “The specified directory partition already exists”
In ADSI Edit in “CN=Configuration,CN=Partitions” I see a crossRef named “DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=local”
I have only 1 simple domain, no child domains.
My current forest/domain functional levels are Server 2003
My replication scopes are set to “To all DNS servers in the Active Directory DOMAIN example.local”
Is the ForestDnsZone completely lost? Just a reference to it but not actually there?
Should I change the DNS type to be just Primary / not intergrated, delete the Domain/Forest DNS zones and start again?
I don’t know much about AD partitions but have tried the options above with no success.
