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

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.

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?
