Gotta quick question concerning DC failover. Below is my configuration:
DC1: PDC, RID, Global Catalog
DC2: Schema, Domain Naming, Infrastructure, Global Catalog
(Having the Infrastructure Master on the same machine as a GC should be acceptable since BOTH DC's are GC's)
The question is this. I've noticed that if I have DC2 turned off, or down for maintenance, the domain login scripts don't seem to run on the user machines. Clients ARE properly authenticating to the domain and sucessfully logging in my utilizing DC1, but the script doesn't seems to run because none of the drives get mapped, ect.
I'm not experiencing any problems with the machines, no replication errors, no errors in the event log on either of the machines, the sysvol share with the scripts are present on both DCs.
Am I missing something? I thought that the DC's should fail over in a way that would be completley transparent, especially since both of my DC's are global catalog servers.
