Hello everyone, on the attached picture you can see the topology of my lab. I`m having troubles promoting the server called DC-2-2 to a domain controller for child.office-2.local. I got "The replication partner: DC-2.office-2.local shows replication errors." In the txt file you can find the output of "Install-ADDSDomain". I can not figure out how to use repadmin.exe to narrow down the cause of the issue. May I ask you for help? Capture

    can not figure out how to use repadmin.exe to narrow down the cause of the issue.

    I'd check the FRS Replication or DFS Replication event logs for clues. Then if needed you can try a non-authoritative sync.

    If you're using older FRS you can follow along here. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/290762/using-the-burflags-registry-key-to-reinitialize-file-replication-servi
    or for DFSR follow along here. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2218556/how-to-force-an-authoritative-and-non-authoritative-synchronization-fo

    You can try a non-authoritative sync, or another option is to demote, reboot, promo again the problematic one.
