Re: [Samba] 4 DC's to downgrade




one other thing. The thing that pointed me towards the missing cname issue was 

samba-tool drs showrepl
with the WERR_BADFILE error associated with the CNAME-less server. I had generated a similar problem recently for another DC by introducing a typo when I created the CNAME record. When I corrected it the WERR_BADFILE error went away. I mention this for anyone searching the web for a solution to WERR_BADFILE, which in this context is about the most misleading error I could imagine. (it may make sense at a lower level, but when you're troubleshooting, 'BADFILE' really does not suggest a missing DNS record)

 Looks like it was the samba install that caused the problem, but not which version. For reasons that I won't go into one of the DC's had lost the _msdcs.domain.com record and replication went to pot. Fixed the problem, we'll see how it goes.

 Okay I didn't read that. surprised that it should work with the databases as is. The dbcheck function was quite involved when it was run on the 4.5.5. update.
