Hi Yesterday my server crashed and if you look at my history I have had some great help trying to get it restored.
On my secondary server I though I had AD replicated. When my main AD server crashed nobody can authenticate on the second server and I cannot open AD - it says domain not found.
I tried to configure DHCP on this machine and got basically the same message - "cannot contact AD"
My DNS seems okay on my second server and I configured the users to point to it and my gateway.
I ended up configureing my router to be a DHCP just to get empoyees online again.
Nobody can access my second server (Dell2) and AD is not showing up.
I am asuming this is where I have to sieze (or transfer) the rolls over to this server.
Whts the point of having ad replicated to two servers if one fails and you have to do all this? Or am I missing some basic knowledge or configured it wrong?
