    2000I installed a new server at one of our offices to replace a 2000 DC that
    was starting to fail. After a successful install of a 2003 server I ran
    dcprome on the new server, rebooted then ran dcpromo on the old 2000 DC to
    demote and eventualy remove it from our network.

    I'm having problems with the new 2003 servers replication. When I look
    under the properties of the NTDS Site Setting for this site the Inter-Site
    Topology Generator Server and Site both show Invalid.

    Is there a way to change these settings ?

  2. That value would be changed by the DC that assumes the role on itself and it
    would replicate out from there. Check the NTDS Settings object for that site on
    the DC and look specifically at the interSiteTopologyGenerator attribute.

    I would expect you have replication issues that cause you to not see the istg
    properly versus the istg not being properly viewable causing issues.
