How did you move the FSMOs? If the server had died, you will have needed to seize them onto the remaining DC : http://www.petri.co.il/seizing_fsmo_roles.htm
In addition, you will need to perform a metadata cleanup to remove any traces of the dead server : http://www.petri.co.il/delete_failed_dcs_from_ad.htm
Follow both of these walkthroughs to bring AD to a 'normal' state again.
What are you trying to log on to when you get the error?
Forgot to say, you will also need to ensure that your remaining DC is also a global catalog (AD Sites & Services, properties of the NTDS settings for the server).
Your remaining DC also needs to be a DNS server, and your clients need to be looking at it for DNS now.
