"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Primary and secondary domain controllers are for NT - they do not apply in active directory Windows 2000.

As Julian said - there are no PDC/BDCs under W2K/3 per se. Instead there are five FSMO roles including the PDC-emulator. The following is a dump of the DUMPFSMO.VBS script from the resource script. It lists the five role holders.

goto done

@echo Please provide the name of a domain controller (i.e. dumpfsmos MYDC)
