If you're doing this on virtual machine, make sure to disable Time synchronization on your host machine because none of the above suggestions will otherwise work.

I read on another website that closing the service.msc waiting a few seconds and opening it again will make the agent, security and traps tabs appear. Worked for me. https://martcj.wordpress.com/2012/03/29/snmp-service-has-no-agent-traps-or-security-tabs-to-configure-in-windows-2008/

Microsoft has an article about moving a DC to another site that you probably want to review in detail. Make sure you have your subnets, site connectors, and bridgehead servers configured. It sounds like your servers still have different ideas of what the replication topology is supposed to be, and are not on the same page.

IMHO the best solution would be to deploy Read-Only domain controller in Brighton. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754719%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

The problem was that I used the IP address when trying to connect, while the certificate was issued for a DNS name. Now it works.

I would give the following resolutions in this order (try again after each): Use FQDN: example.com instead of just example. Check that your DNS server is resolving the server IP correctly. If you are using external DNS servers, they probably won't resolve internal addresses. If your domain controller has DNS role, set your DHCP to make it the primary DNS ...

Looks like I'm running into (a variant of?) this issue: the promotion completes successfully if I use "long" logon credentials, i.e. A0.lab\AdmA0 instead of A0\AdmA0. However, based on the article, this issue should only happen if NetBIOS over TCP/IP is disabled, but it's actually enabled, and this can be verified in the ipconfig output. I also tried ...

I found the solution. It was very obscure. After applying the fix everything just worked. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/spatdsg/archive/2011/06/06/audit-policy-not-registering-audits.aspx

You may want to review the following warning on the help web site: "Using both the basic audit policy settings under Local Policies\Audit Policy and the advanced settings under Advanced Audit Policy Configuration can cause unexpected results. Therefore, the two sets of audit policy settings should not be combined. If you use Advanced Audit Policy ...

I set up a second domaincontroller fot backup, No, you did not. You did set up a second domain controller. Your intention is irrelevant here. If you want a backup, make a backup. I see that is manages logons for half of my computers, As it should. Can I set it up that it actually does nothing, No. You can not. That is not supported - and ...

PS GetSid from Sysinternals will show if the SIDS match. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897417.aspx If they match then that's the answer, if they are different then it won't show if it was cloned and sysprep'd, or changed via another method, or not a clone at all. OTOH, MS provides a 180 day free trial, spin up a new 2012 vm, promote ...

First off, a domain is a set of interconnected resources on a Windows-based platform, such as printers, applications, etc) for a group of users. Users who are part of the domain (who are given usernames and passwords to log on to the domain) are granted specific permissions to access the resources, which may be located on one or more servers in the network. ...

Build the new server Give it a temporary IP address Join it to the domain Promote it to DC (you could need some adprep if this hasn't already been done) Add required additional services (DNS, etc.) Move FSMO roles if required Change the IP address of the old DC to a temporary one Reboot the old DC two times Wait some time for replication (an hour should be ...

"Best" is highly subjective, but you can re-use the same IP address after you demote the domain controller. You just need to make sure that the references to the old domain controller are gone from Active Directory before promoting a new domain controller at that IP address, and keep in mind that client computers may need to reboot (or at least refresh ...

Try performing an authoritative restore from a working domain controller. http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/290762

DSRM, dcpromo /forceremoval, and metadata cleanup. Microsoft recommends that tombstone lifetime be set to 180 days, you may want to consider that, as it also affects the lifetime of your backups and ability to recover.

Simple, standard broken trust. Just unjoin and rejoin the domain from a local admin account on the PC "Cypher". That's simplest, though depending on OS, you could also use powershell or netdom to reset the Machine password. Snide aside, upgrade from Server 2003 as it is EOL in like 2 months...

Just set up a domain controller and Active Directory site (through the Active Directory Sites and Services utility) at your Brighton office after you've got the forest created at the London office. You already have a server at your Brighton site for DHCP and DNS, so you gain nothing by not utilizing it for domain services as well.

Do the following on the machine on which you are unable to add to the domain: arp -d * nbtstat -R ipconfig /flushdns and then reboot the machine

You should have more than one domain controller in your network. And you shouldn't have anything else of consequence on this domain controller. So wipe the server and reinstall from scratch.
