Hi, I need help. Recently, I demoted what use to be my primary DC in my domain, Server 2003 SP2 from being a DC. I have all my FSMO roles on my new primary DC, Server 2008 R2 SP1.
My new primary DC has been in place for several months now. So, it should be good to go in this aspect of replication time, etc.
From a member here, mkline71, gave me this link http://blogs.technet.com/b/markmoro/archive/2011/08/05/you-are-not-smarter-than-the-kcc.aspx
which states let KCC do it's job and recreate the AD Sites & Services connections between my multiple branch sites, hoping that KCC would be smart enough to select the correct new primary DC for all branch DC's to point back to for replication.
So, I have waited for nearly 2 hours and 1 of my 3 branch sites displays the correct new primary DC in AD Sites & Services.
The one branch DC that is displaying correctly in AD SItes & Services is a Server 2003 x64 with latest SP.
The other 2 branch DC's, one is a Server 2008 R2 SP1 & the other is Server 2003 x64 with latest SP.
Here is something even more strange, the one branch DC (Server 2003 x64) is still displaying the old primary DC that I have demoted and the other branch DC that is displaying the correct new primary DC in AD Sites & Services.
Should I just be patient and see if it corrects itself in the new couple hours or is there something more seriously wrong that needs my immediate attention?
Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
