I am in a lab environment practicing and learning to recover my primary domain controller in the event that both my DC's are gone and I have a full server backup in place for disaster recovery
in production I have 2 domains DC1 and DC2, DC1 is the FSMO holder for all roles and also hosts the DHCP server.
DC2 roles include ADDS and DNS both are GC servers
I created a VM with similar matching hardware to DC1 on a isolated network and then ran through the process of restoring the machine from the full server backup , this completed and the machine booted.
I seized the FSMO (they are already assigned on the backup but seems to be playing up so I went through the seizing process) and then proceed to do a metadata cleanup of DC2 (since its not around in this testing area)
started the required services DNS ect and everything seems to be going well so far.
when I run DCDIAG I get passed test for everything bar Netlogons & a few errors in the SystemLog relating to group policy
my error is a common one but the solutions I have tried have't worked for me ( setting the SysVolReady Flag to 0 then to 1)
the error is "unable to connect to the Netlogon share! <\DC1\netlogon>
[DC1] An net use of LSAPollicy operation failed with error 67 the network name cannot be found.
I am still quite new to the domain controller scene could anyone give me a little more information on what this is and a possible alternative solution?
as it stands I have a restored DC1 hosting ADDS, DNS, DHCP and all 5 FSMO roles
