What can we do about this error?

It was the only good DC in the domain as the other one is broken.

Log Name: Directory Service

Source: Microsoft-Windows-ActiveDirectory_DomainService

Date: 10/03/2021 09:51:23

Event ID: 2092

Task Category: Replication

Level: Warning

Keywords: Classic


Computer: dc01.domain.local


This server is the owner of the following FSMO role, but does not consider it valid. For the partition which contains the FSMO, this server has not replicated successfully with any of its partners since this server has been restarted. Replication errors are preventing validation of this role.

Operations which require contacting a FSMO operation master will fail until this condition is corrected.

FSMO Role: DC=domain,DC=local

User Action:

1. Initial synchronization is the first early replications done by a system as it is starting. A failure to initially synchronize may explain why a FSMO role cannot be validated. This process is explained in KB article 305476.

2. This server has one or more replication partners, and replication is failing for all of these partners. Use the command repadmin /showrepl to display the replication errors. Correct the error in question. For example there maybe problems with IP connectivity, DNS name resolution, or security authentication that are preventing successful replication.

try going to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters in the registry and adding or editing the DWORD SysVolReady from 0 to 1 and reboot as this should confirm that the contents of the SysVol folder are up-to-date.

Erm - it started working after a while but that value was already present so it may have had an affect...?

Thanks anyway 🖐
