I am learning windows 2008 ,
and I have 2 SErver (DC1 and DC2) and couple of computer
and I was watching a learning dvd
which is saying that :
if Primary domain controller (PDC) emulator master is down then it can be difficult to add computer or new user into DC2
so to testing .
I shuddown , DC1 ,
only DC2 is working
and I can see Error on DC2 when i go to check "Operation Master"
and its showing Error on DC1 (Please see the picture)
and also I have realized that DC2 is very slow when i try to traverse Active directory .
my question is :
when DC1 is down and DC2 is up :
still i can autheticaion user via DC2 , if i reboot a pc and i can authenticate user via DC".
so whats the problem ?
so why Primary domain controller (PDC) emulator master is so important ??
(2) when DC1 is going down, why DC2 is so slow (Specially when i try to traverse via AD??
