Systems fail to log onto domain controller
Posted on 2004-08-07
I noticed this past week that while rebooting one of the domain controllers serveral of the clients lost thier connection and tried to log on and could not. Shouldn't the other DC take over when one is offline? Some systems didn't have a problem at all but about 10 were not polling the other dc. All systems are on the same subnet. dcdiag shows no errors, replication looks fine with no errors regarding ntfrs in the event viewer. All failing systems could ping both dc's.
I need to make sure that all systems can poll and log onto the other dc. Anyone know how I can test and/or fix this issue?
DC's are win2k SP4 and clients are XP pro.
Thanks in advance!
