I have two domain controllers and they look to have lost their connection.  If I turn off the older one then I cannot get to the domain for logins.  If I have the older one on then everything is find.  What commands can I run to determine what is not working on the newer server for domain control?

What I have found is the old domain controller is corrupt, I need to make seize everything and get it going on the new server.  I have everything but the netlogon share done.  Any good ideas on how to get the netlogon share running?
