Re: [Samba] Cannot remove offline domain




Hi Harsh,

I am trying to remove a dead offline domain using the below command which
is failing

samba-tool domain demote --remove-other-dead-server=IUMONG-RODC
-UAdministrator
ERROR: Demote failed: DemoteException: IUMONG-RODC is not an AD DC in
iumnet.edu.na
A transaction is still active in ldb context [0x2bf15b0] on
tdb:///var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb

IUMONG-RODC domain is still visible under domain controllers in Active
Directory Users and Computers.

I'll suppose from the name of your DC that it is a RODC. I've never used the demote command line to remove a RODC. Perhaps you have found a bug.

Anyway, you can still remove all the references by hand. To know which entries to delete, you can demote a RWDC in a testbed, it will list all the entries that have to be remove, then you'll have to remove them by hand in your production domain.

Cheers,

Denis


Please help on how to remove all the records of this dead domain from the
DC.

Thanks n Regards
