Troubleshooting Active Directory Lingering Objects

Sign in to queue


Widely known as the gift that keeps on giving, lingering objects never really go away unless a comprehensive removal solution is implemented. These little buggers are commonly found to be the root cause of many Exchange, Lync and core AD DS service outages. Many outages are resolved after some lengthy troubleshooting only to find the issue return weeks later. In this five DC, three-domain lab environment you work through one of the most challenging Active Directory replication problems seen by customers globally: Lingering object identification and cleanup. In this lab you are given everything needed to eradicate lingering objects from your customer's environment. Included free of charge: all the tools, background information and time-saving techniques needed to save the day on your next lingering object-induced Active Directory outage. We work through the symptom, cause, and resolution phases of lingering object troubleshooting. Several scenarios and cleanup methods are used along with a full description of when alternate cleanup methods are needed in the comprehensive lab guide.
