How can I remove an unavailable domain controller from DA multi site deployment? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    One of our site closed suddenly with no option for us to decommission DC and DA entry point.

    I could remove DC manually but unable to change within direct access environment, cmd I tried:

    Set-DAEntryPointDC –ExistingDC “Server.domain.tld” -NewDC “Server.domain.tld” –Force -PassThru

    but it says entry point cannot be found, I tried removing entry point first using this cmd, but wont work either:

    Remove-DAEntryPointTableItem  -EntryPointName "abc" -PolicyStore "\DirectAccess2 Client Setting"

    Get-DAEntryPointTableItem -EntryPointName "abc" -PolicyStore  "\DirectAccess2 Client Settings" | Remove-DAEntryPointTableItem

    GUI cannot be opened as well, please suggest next steps.

    Error: directaccess server gpo settings cannot be retrieved. ensure you have edit permissions for the gpo
