Posted on 2011-10-18
Last Modified: 2015-04-02
We recently built new 2008r2 DC's and everything went smoothly,  till we shutdown our old 2003 DC as a test.  When the 2003 DC is up we everything works fine, however when powered off we get rpc server cannot be found.  I need free up this box but cannot figure out what is on that 2003 DC thats causing the issue.  Any ideas?

    Just check all FSMO roles are hosted in new DC..

    make sure that your client DNS settings are pointing to new DC properly...

    At the client end... open command prompt... execute SET command... check whats the 'logonserver'? is it ur new DC?

    Accepted Solution

    We figured it out, we changed the SRV weight/priority to allow the other DC's to respond first.
