I'm trying to upgrade an exchange 2013 server to CU18, but it's currently failing.
The error is...
The server side error is: 0x21a2 The FSMO role ownership could not be verified because its directory partition has not replicated successfully with at least one replication partner.
Now this is a standalone server, however it originally did have a partner, but we ended up scrapping that.
I can see in active directory sites and services that it lists both itself and the server that was going to be its replica.
Can i just right click and delete that server from sites and services to proceed does anyone know?
I've had a bit of a search and everything suggests that i fix the replication before continuing... well thats easier said than done as the server that was going to be the replica doesnt exist any more.
any help appriciated.
