NT4 terminal server, cant login to a newly promoted PDC

Working with a NT4 Domain, I have promoted a BDC to take the place of a failing PDC. Now I have a terminal server that cant find the PDC.
There are only two machines left on this domain. The Domain Controller and a nt4 terminal server. I grabed an old nt4 workstation and added it to the domain. it works fine, so I believe the PDC is handleing logon requests ok. not sure what ele to check.

I got it, I just renamed the terminal server and readded it to the domain, all is OK. thanks anyway.
Do you have a WINS server on the new PDC, and is your TS configured to use it (instead of the old one)?
Then check the lmhosts (no extension!) file on the TS (in %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc); the old PDC or its IP address shouldn't be found in there.

Yes WINS is running on the new PDC, LMHOSTS also points to new PDC ip.
Closed, 500 points refunded.
