2 Windows Servers 2003. Server A is main server, Server B is backup. When server A is down, an error message "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request" pops up when a drive on another server (server c) is attempted.

How do I resolve?

To have logon functionality you need a Global catalog server available. So you should assign Server B as a Global catalog server now.

Also check your DNS.  If Server B uses Server A for DNS, and not itself, it will not be able to query DNS for logon servers.

Server B was already a global catalog server and dns was pointing to itself

1. Server B is a global catalg server and also one of AD DNS server (Same as Server A)

2. Server C's IP setting
   Primary DNS: Server A
   Secondary DNS: Server B

3. So Server C is able to logon to domain when Server A is down.
