Event 3

Log Name: Directory Service
Source: Microsoft-Windows-ActiveDirectory_DomainService
Date: <date><time>
Event ID: 1659
Task Category: Replication
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
User: ANONYMOUS LOGON
Computer: <computer name>

Description:
The removal of the following directory partition from the local Active Directory Domain Services database has resumed.

Directory partition:
<DN path of already-removed directory partition>

Number of objects remaining be removed (approximately):
<number of objects to be removed>

Number of name values remaining be removed (approximately):
0



Note: On the affected DC you may also observe the symptom that "Active Directory Sites and Services" MMC Snap-in DSSITE.MSC, "Replicate Now", brings up Warning popup "The naming context is in the process of being removed or is not replicated from the specified Server". But if you check the Replication Status with "REPADMIN /SHOWREPL <Computer Name>" you may notice that replication of all NCs was successful.

Cause

This problem occurs because the domain controller in the Active Directory cannot delete the partition for a naming context that is removed from the forest.
