Server 2003 FSMO roles reported wrong
Posted on 2008-10-01
We have a statewide network, with each office having a 2003 AD server as a backup. At our hq, we have the main 2003 AD server.
Recently, we had problems with the original server. Rolese were transerverd to our ms-vicksburg server from the original AD ms-dc1. Now, we have a new 2003 server box ms-dc. We transfered the roles to this box, and everything seems to be replicating through the districts.
Recently, trying to add a user to a computer, AD said on ms-dc that the user was there. However, when trying to add him, it would not. Looking at ms-dc1's AD, the user was not there.
I did a netdom query fsmo roles, and everything is pointing to the ms-vicksburg server. However, do the same on the ms-dc, and everything is pointing to the ms-dc server.
Is there any way to without removing AD from ms-dc1 to force it to look at ms-dc? I would like to keep dc1 as a backup for the main server.
