So, I introduced my new Server 2008 machine into my Server 2003 domain. Then, without using dcpromo at all, I made my new, 2008 server, an alternate DC and allowed everything to replicate. I then gave the new server Operations Master for all three tabs, just to see if users would use the user.bat script in the new servers SYSVOL. Anyway, without changing any of my users' profile paths. They didn't use that batch file. I then gave Ops Master back to the 2003 server. All this without disturbing network connectivity. When I power down the new server, people all of a sudden lose connectivity to the old server. I'm baffled by all this and I MUST get this network up and running TODAY! Please help!

Tremendous thanks in advance,
