One fine morning on Friday, we were reported an issue with IIS. The issue was that the application pools in IIS is getting stopped once the related website is browsed, hence resulting in HTTP Error 503 : Service Unavailable. It was also reported that the development team has not done anything specific in their code, which means issue is unexpected.

While checking the replication of my root and child dc’s by the commands
“repadmin /syncall” and “repadmin /showreps” I got an error as shown below:
can’t retrieve message string 1908 (0x774) error 1815
Group policy consists a set of policies that are applied for the computers. These are applied on the basis of computer wide configuration and user wide configuration. Group policies are applied in some specific order.
What about the hierarchy of applying group policy settings?
Move tree.exe is a command line utility that enables administrators to move AD objects such as OU’s, Users etc between domains in a single forest. This supports organizational restructuring. Moving AD objects doesn’t mean that all objects are moved. There are exceptions like computer objects or the data associated outside the AD, which are not moved during a move tree operation.
It is possible to make changes to a particular object in active directory at a time by multiple administrators. In simple it is possible for two administrators to make conflicting changes to an ad at the same time. So, what if like an admin has deleted an OU from a dc and another administrator from another dc moved a user to that particular OU at the same time? What happens in this case before replication happens? There comes Lost and Found container in ad for rescue.
