Good afternoon,
 
I have 3 servers : 1 DC (Windows 2003 which I upgraded from windows 2000 yesturday) and 2 Windows servers.
The upgrade went fine. I used adprep (/forestprep and /domainprep) and everything was successful.

After upgrading the DC, the communication betwen the Windows 2000 and the Dc is erratic: have to reboot the wks to print, lost connections ...

On one of my server, I get the followin error message : Event id 5719 "No windows 2000 Domain Controller is available. The following error occured : The RPC server is unavailable.

Thanks
John

Verify that DNS is available and functioning correctly. Run the Netdiag /debug command on the server in question. This will evaluate the registration of NetBIOS, DNS, and services
also apply the latest service pack and updates for your servers.

if not success remove the servers from the domain and rejoin the domain.
