Hi there.  I have a WIN2K domain with 2 DC's.  The primary DC crashed and lost everything.  Wouldn't fate have it that it was the global catalog server, not to mention all 5 FSMO roles.  Is there any way I can get my remaining DC to take control of the FSMO roles, and recreate the global catalog?  All of my users are still able to log on and access network resources.  Is there anything I can do, or will I end up having to recreate the domain?  Thanks in advance,

Andy
