Errors error root DC reports child
Email It to Me Print this Page
Symptoms You have Netwrix Auditor configured to monitor child domain and keep receiving reports with root DCs errors.
Cause Even if you are monitoring a child domain, Netwrix Auditor tries to connect to the domain controllers from the root domain in order to collect information on changes in the Schema and Configuration partitions (since this information is stored in the root domain). If the account, under which the task for the child domain is running, haven`t got enough permissions for access root DC, you can get different root DC errors in Summary Report. 
Resolution Perform the following steps to omit root DC errors:
  1. In Netwrix Auditor, navigate to Managed Objects --> <your_Managed_Object_name> --> Active Directory
  2. In the pane at the right, click the Configure button next to Advanced Options and deselect the Configuration and Schema options.
  3. Open the Registry Editor(Start -> Run and type "regedit") and navigate to the Active Directory Change Reporter node:
    • 32-bit OS: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE ->NetWrix ->AD Change Reporter
    • 64-bit OS: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE ->Wow6432Node->NetWrix ->AD Change Reporter
  4. Set the IgnoreRootDCErrors key to 1.
