Domain logon problems

Domain (Windows 2003 Server) called XXX Resides in CA.  We installed an additional Server (Same Domain XXX)   in remote location in CO. Both are members of Same Domain. Question is: CO lost WAN connection and now local CO users cannot login.
The Idea was to have a local server so they can still authenticate even if disconnected from CA.
Thanks

You need to make sure that the local DC is also a Global Catalog server and a DNS server. You also should set up sites ans services so that each site has its own subnet(s) and these are designated to sites in AD Sites and Services - that will make sure the DC on the same site gets used by default.

Not for points, but just to echo what KCTS has said...  He is absolutely correct.  Make sure your remove DC is a GC and make sure Sites and Services is correctly set up.
