I have just introduced a new Windows 2003 terminal server on its own hp box that now connects to a clone server running windows 2000 server. I have noticed that the terminal server takes a while, longer than anticipated, to log on to the main 2000 server (which is the current dc). I have also noticed that when I create a new shared folder on the new server I cannot see any of the domain users in teh active directory, I can see all the pc's through My network Neighborhood and can browse them but the I cannot assign specific user rights.
Do I need to do a dcpromo on this new server or is there another way of speeding up the logging in process and seeing the active directory..?
The main 2000 server is just the dc, runs a proxy mail server called mailgate and shares files. the new server is designed to be just a terminal server running only sage apps and office. the ip range is 10.0.0.x
Any answers would be gratefully received and rewarded with points.
