Pass sync is working properly on this customer, but when going into the PassSync Applet on the remote loader machine and clicking on the Filters button, the attached screen opens and shows the message: "Error reading registry (1707)". The Remote loader is local to the Windows 2003 domain controller.


This error is caused by ghost Domain Controllers (DC) objects in AD. Run the command NETDOM QUERY DC. After the command returns. Identify which DC's no longer exist and then remove them using MMC.
