Windows Server 2003 AD Domain Site Unable to Locate PDCe
Posted on 2010-08-20
I have a single forest/domain with two sites. DC1(all FSMO roles) and DC2(GC) are in Site A(subnet 10.x.x.x) located in LA and DC3(GC) is Site B(subnet 172.x.x.x) located in Austin. The link from Site A to B is using IP as the transport. DC1 & 2 events are clean and systems are fully functional. DC3 DNS, AD & Sysvol replication has been tested and working properly, however in the event logs there are the following:
*Event ID 36 W32Time – The time service has not synchronized…(how do you sync a server in a different site and also in a different time zone?
*Event ID 5719 Netlogon – Not able to set up a secure session with a DC…
*Event ID 3096 Netlogon – The PDC for this domain could not be located…
*Event ID 3019 MRxSmb – The redirector failed to determine the connection type
Also, running dcdiag on the DC3 reports that it cannot find the PDC in the domain.
