    For example, Event Viewer, dcdiag.exe, Netdiag.exe and Repadmin.exe are your friend. Here is other article:

  • Hello,

    if the support tools as listed below will not show errors you should be fine, if you think we should review them please UPLOAD the log files:

    ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.log [from each DC/DNS Server]
    dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:dcname >c:\dcdiag.log
    repadmin /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite >c:\repl.log  ["dc* is a place holder for the starting name of the DCs if they all begin the same (if more then one DC exists)]
    dnslint /ad /s "DCipaddress" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321045)
    ADREPLSTATUS http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30005 can also be exported to file.

    As the output will become large, DON'T post them into the thread, please use Windows Sky Drive (skydrive.live.com) [with open access!] and add the link from it here. Also the /e in dcdiag scans the complete forest, so better run it on COB.

    "...after i upgrade there is Windows.old folder..."

    Yes, this is normal. With disk cleanup, advanced to clean system files you can remove the windows.old folder.
