Active Directory-related KnowledgeBase articles for January 2012

knowledgebaseA new year, a new slew of Microsoft KnowledgeBase articles!

The Active Directory Documentation Team really put its effort in expanding the library of guidance-oriented KnowledgeBase articles, next to the normal amount of new and revised KnowledgeBase articles.

Here’s the overview for January 2012:

Informational KnowledgeBase articles

Microsoft seems to have revised all the Active Directory troubleshooting knowledgebase articles in an effort to provide a consistent troubleshooting experience:

2023704 Troubleshooting Active Directory operations that fail with error 8452: “The naming context is in the process of being removed or is not replicated from the specified server.”

2020053 Troubleshooting Active Directory operations that fail with error 8614: “The Active Directory cannot replicate with this server because the time since the last replication with this server has exceeded the tombstone lifetime”

2645996 Troubleshooting Active Directory Operations that fail with error 8451: The replication operation encountered a database error

2090913 Troubleshooting Active Directory operations that fail with error -2146893022: The target principal name is incorrect.

2089874 Troubleshooting Active Directory operations that fail with error 1753: There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.

2021446 Troubleshooting Active Directory operations that fail with error 8524: The DSA operation is unable to proceed because of a DNS lookup failure

2102154 Troubleshooting Active Directory operations that fail with error 1722: The RPC server is unavailable

2183411 Troubleshooting Active Directory operations that fail with error 1396: Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect.

Of the 13 ‘Troubleshooting Active Directory’ KnowledgeBase articles, Microsoft has now revised the above 10. I guess the others will soon meet their maker.

    Nice blog Sander. I do like how all the KB’s are now consistent. It will also help people learn repadmin commands they may not know (hard to know them all).

    Hope to see you at the summit.

    Thanks
