Active directory locatorcheck failed
Posted on 2012-09-12
I have a client with Active Directory and 5 sites. The primary site has two DC's. Once dc is the PDC and also holds all other fsmo roles. If we run dcdiag on the PDC or the other DC in the primary site it passes all tests.
If we run dcdiag on any DC in the other sites they pass all tests except for locatorcheck.
Replication occurs between sites so I am hoping somebody can give me some steps to troubleshoot this. I have read that this test is very important as it means the DCs cannot find the FSMO role holders which seems strange considering the DCs pass the roleholders test.
So how important is it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
