I  have a primary and backup DC running on Windows Server 2003.  I ran dcdiag on support tools and it looks like it's replicating alright, When the primary DC fails, and I ping the domain, it pings to the backup DC;  though, no one is able to login to mail or vpn.  It seems that it does not completely take on the DC role.  What can I do to make sure that the backup successfully takes on the primary DC role?
