Primary domain controller FAILS

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
in out network  we have  windows2003 PDB and BDC
last night we had to  transfer  the PDC in a  new machine ( vmware)

We just created a new windows 2003 machine..  installed a BDC
and then promoted the new one as PDC

all worked ok for  few days but now  our network doesn't  have
a PDC......
When we look in active directory  -domain controllers -----
 it looks like we have  2 domain controllers but no  PRIMARY.

any idea ?
