Netlogon and Other DC Role holder problems
Posted on 2008-11-12
Member Servers cannot connect to domain and DC FSMO role holder has all kinds of errors.
I am getting all kinds of netdiag and dcdiag errors on the primary DC (has all the FSMO roles + GC).

I tried the following before the above netdiag and dcdiags were run:
net stop netlogon
net start netlogon
I did a netdom query fsmo and none of the roles were listed
So I did an ntdsutil and grabbed the fsmo roles from the DC itself. (Kind of wierd, but it worked)
I ran netdom query fsmo again and the roles are now listed for the DC.
DNS looks OK, both the primary zones and the reverse dns, and all the srv records are in the right places in the _msdcs folder.
So here I am lost as to what I do next. Help would be appreciated.
