> 1. Should I restoree DC1 since DC2 is already offline.
What size is your domain? On a small installation it's sometimes worth
starting from scratch instead of trying to fix the databases and
overlook something that gets later worse.
[dcmwai]Just 25 PC and about 15~30 users, you are right that is the issue
Just thinking in future or wiki.
If we take a snapshot on the whole vm. Should we stop samba from running?
or should we remove that disk from being taking taking snapshot?
Just my though...
If we have 2 DC, DC1 and Dc2, if I restore DC1 to some point before
(Running or Stop)
Would DC2 restore DC1 DB? since the information on DC1 are older...
You have currently only DC1 online, but it's broken. And DC2 is also
broken and offline. Right? So if it's already in that worse state, you
can try the following:
Setup a separated test environment. Restore the snapshots of both DCs.
Check if the replicate. Run
[dcmwai] too late for that unless I restore both DC1 and DC2... As I've
deleted /var/lib/samba (everything)
# samba-tool dbcheck --cross-ncs --reset-well-known-acls --fix
on both hosts. And then try to demote DC2.
Which of the two hosts had which FSMO role? If they were all on DC1,
then you should be able to demote DC2. At least bug #10734 seems only to
happen if the host, that should be demoted, had roles before.
[dcmwai] will try that, all FSMO are on DC1. ah better...
> 2. Can we do any backup the DC in any other way?
What I do in production is to run the backup script (a modified version)
on all DCs. Even if you must not restore a single DC, if others are
still working, this may be some day a help, if the total desaster
[dcmwai] too bad that I cannot do that before...
Because of the wrong LDflags on the gentoo I build, all the ldbsearch and
edit function required by samba_backup was having segment fault and I'm
trying to fix that when I discover the DC2 are broken...(Due to the restore

The user/group stuff you can export via ldap (at least the most
attributes). And you can write a script that creates the users via
samba-tool again. But you can't restore the SID on this way. Also you
don't get the passwords out of your DC.
[dcmwai] Why can't we, we do have native access to the database... we don't
access it using ldap or other protocol we are accessing it using the DB
control. which I think we should have all the Encrypted password ;)

I didn't understand that.
[dcmwai] What I meant was Make a new DC and Join in... Do you think that it
would have more issue :)
