Hi Martin, I wasnt aiming that at you...was just aiming at experts posting incorrect details and not clarifying :)

There has been some known cases when the failover doesnt automaitcally happen - i take the fail over is also DNS server?

What errors log when the other DC is off?

if one is PDC and other is BDC then there shouldn't be any problems

Jay_Jay70Commented:
there is no such thing as a PDC and a BDC.

Now lets take a look at the problem.....The DC that crashed...did it contain FSMO roles?

Is your new DC a global catalog as well?

Have you removed the dead DC?

I know there is no PDC or BDC. I was just trying to define one from the other why explaining the issue.

I made sure the roles are on the Good Domain controller before I rebuilt the one with the failing HD.

I believe it is a global catalog.
