I recently added 4 new servers including a new domain controller to our network. On the new domain controller I did the ntdsutil command to transfer the fsmo roles, but somehow that isn't working right. The new domain controller is acting up, and when i shut down the previous role holder (the sbs2003 server) ((note: i did not demote it, in case something went wrong and i needed it back)) things went haywire. the network only seems to work if it is up and running. I have created other domain contorollers in the lan and made them GC's. Could this be caused because i didn't demote the sbs box? What is the downside to doing that? As a side issue which i believe is related my system clocks keep going haywire and areoff by 7 minutes. All desktops get this but only about half the servers. The new DC has a bad time setting but the old sbs has the right time.
