Hi, I had a windows 2000 server that was failing, I got a new 2003 server, connected it to the domain and was able to manage users on it, after I transfered the shares on to the new server, added dns and verified all I figured the new server was managing everything, especially since the clients were using its ip address as the primary dns server.
Then the old 200 server died, now most everything seems fine on the client side, the dns checks out, but, when I try to add a new user account I get the following message...
Windows cannot verify that the user name is unique because the following error occured while contacting the global catalog: The server is not operational.
Windows will create this user account, but the user can log on only after the user name is verified to be unique. Make sure the global catalog is avalable.
Thanks a ton guys, this sucks.
