Limited or no connectivity from client PC's in 2003 Domain after First DC demotion
Posted on 2007-07-20
Network has 3 DC's (2003) named: ServerMain, Server 2, 2850. All three as GC's No Exchange installed. AD was replicated on all three DC's about two months ago. The client was removing the older server (servermain) from the domain. He transfered all the FSMO roles to Server2. He stated that when he ran DCPROMO to demoted servermain it errored out due to netlogon. He then stopped netlogon and then restarted the dcpromo on servermain and it went through with no problems.
After that he tried to connect a client to the network it seemed to logon but has "Limited or No Connectivity" on client PC.
He also stated that on the first DCPROMO he saw server2 on the wizard screen. When he ran it again he stated he saw 2850. I am pretty sure he transfered the FSMO roles to server2 but for some reason the other DC showed up (2850) on the second attempt for DCPROMO. I will be onsite Saturday morning. Could I just seize the FSMO roles on the 2850? . I am not sure how to proceed with this
