Active Directory and a second domain controller
Posted on 2010-04-01
I have 2 Windows 2003 servers. On server1, I installed active directory and created a domain. I also installed DNS.
On server2, I installed active directory and joined the domain I created on server1. I also installed DNS on server2.
When I power down server1, I can ping and do nslookups on servers and PC's in the domain, but cannot connect to any domain shares or search active directory.
I thought server2 is supposed to take over for server1 if it is down. Can anybody give me any suggestions on what may be wrong?
