Domain Controller issue

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have 7 DC's.  3 at the main office and 4 at remote locations.  At one of my locations I am getting an error in the event log 53258.  At that location is two servers DC-4 (Server 2003)and Server-1(Unix).  Server-1 is highly used.

Yesterday I started receiving reports of users not being able to connect to Server-1 from remote locations and from the local users.  Also some of the users that are authenticating to DC-4 are either not able to log on immediately or it is very slow.  Could 53258 be causing this?

"MS DTC could not correctly process a DC Promotion/Demotion event. MS DTC will continue to function and will use the existing security settings. Error Specifics: %1
