Promoting a BDC to PDC and now Server manager shows the servers grayed out on the former PDC now BDC.
Posted on 2004-11-05
I promoted my BDC to a PDC. Now when I look at the server manager on the BDC it shows the some workstation and servers as grayed out as if it was turned off.. I can double click on them and they pulls up the properties just fine. I can shares on it, whos logged in ect. If I go to the PDC formerly the BDC it show the computers as on.. not grayed. I also had a problem with a server couple days ago and had to remove it from the domain and then I re-added it. I re-added it with different name. I tried to remove the old name and it says what it normally says.. the computer has been removed from the doman, even though it is still showing it will be removed in at least 15 minutes. It isnt going away and its been few days now. The new server name shows up grayed out as I stated above and the old is still showing as not grayed but I cant pull of any properties on it, it says its not on the network wich it isnt..
