Performing initial setup:

  • Connecting to directory service on server .
  • Collecting site info.
  • Identifying all servers.
  • **ERROR: There is an inconsistency in the DS, suggest you run dcdiag in a few moments, perhaps on a different DC.

I have made sure the support tools are up to date as well. This is happening on ALL the servers on the domain - ideas? Thanks!

What setup is being run here, that isn't clear. – sysadmin1138 Aug 27 '10 at 16:13
There's about 25-30 DC's within our Forest. All are receiving this error. I'm starting to think it's an issue with our domain health. – cole Aug 27 '10 at 16:23
Also this is running dcdiag.exe I get this error. – cole Aug 27 '10 at 16:24

Dug a little deeper, Directory Services error log shows 1864 errors. So looks like we have some lingering objects and AD needs a serious cleanup.
