Active Directory replication fails with error Target Principal name incorrect

I recently had a problem with a client's Active Directory   2 Active Directory sites were unable to connect during a few days, and in the meantime the domain controllers changed their computer's account password (see Murphy's Law)  When the network came back, the Active Directory replication tools gave the following error :   DCDIAG reports that the Active Directory Replications test has failed with error -2146893022: “The target principal name is incorrect."

Active Directory : replication error target principal name incorrect

Lors d'un dépannage client, j'ai du résoudre un problème de réplication Active directory assez particulier.   2 sites Active Directory ont été coupés pendant plusieurs jours, et durant ce laps de temps, les contrôleurs de domaine ont changé le mot de passe de leur compte ordinateur (cf loi de Murphy)  Après la coupure, le client n'a pas tout de suite remarqué que les réplications ne se faisaient plus. Au bout d'un temps, il a lancé des outils de diagnostique qui ont retourné l'erreur suivante :   DCDIAG reports... [Lire la suite]

Veeam Backup & Replication: Migrate VM from Hyper-V 2008 R2 to 2012 R2

One of the most important feature of Hyper-V, present in Windows Server 2012, is the Replica. This feature allows to create a copy of VM from host to another faster and easier. Over the classic Disaster Recovery scenario, Replica can be used to migrate your VMs to a new infrastructure or to different domain. But what happen if the old server is based on Windows Server 2008 R2? How we can move our VMs from Hyper-V 2008 R2 to new host based on Hyper-V 2012 R2? If we don't want pay, we can use the classic procedure export/import, but... [Lire la suite]

Save network bandwidth by using Out-of-Band Initial Replication method in Hyper-V Replica

In our recent conversation with customers about Hyper-V Replica, the questions that came up from a few customers was – Is there a way to perform the Initial Replication (IR) for VMs without stressing our organizations internet bandwidth? Initial replication of our VMs take weeks to complete, is there a faster way to get the data across to our secondary datacenter? The answer is “Yes”.

Reporting on RPO Violations From vSphere Replication

A commonly requested thing that people ask for from vSphere Replication is more consolidated reporting.  You can set alerts in vCenter to key off of various things that surface from vSphere Replication, but it is not exactly a consolidated list when doing so.  What people are looking for is a common interface to pull together *just* vSphere Replication alerts for things like RPO violations. My good friends and colleagues Alan Renouf and Lee Dilworth have identified a really elegant way to pull this... [Lire la suite]

Automating VM recovery with stand-alone vSphere Replication

With vSphere 5.1 VMware introduced the stand-alone vSphere Replication feature that enables you to continuously replicate Virtual Machines between different hosts using different storage. Formerly this feature was only available with SRM (Site Recovery Manager), this is why I call the SRM-less version "stand-alone" here, although this is not the official product name.Stand-alone vSphere Replication is included with the vSphere Essentials Plus Kit, the Standard, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus Editions.
