File Replication errors
Windows Server 2003
Last week my servers lost power, and now every night the DC seems to get demoted. The only event errors I receive are File Replication errors. Due to low disk space on my root partition. (2GB free currently) I haven't had these issues before with lower disk space so I wouldn't think this is the issue. I fixed a DNS issue as well, deleting an incorrect DNS record pointing to the wrong FQDN name. I have tried resetting my LAN to no avail. This is a solo DC, do I need to demote then promote this controller?

Software/Hardware used:
Microsoft Server 2003

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would setup a temporary DC to replicate data to. Then rebuild the original DC.

    Yeah reinstall. Setup a spare server or even workstation temporarily with Server 2003. Promote it to a domain controller. Wait for replication. If you are going to reinstall the OS during business hours, you will need to setup the additional services like DNS and DHCP. After the temp server is up and running. Demote the original server and reinstall the OS. Add it back as a DC.
