hi guys,

I've had some problems where we're having authentication problems. We have a domain called FC.LOCAL and a child domain UK.FC.LOCAL. The server which held the FC.LOCAL server role is having major problems, so we're having to rebuild a new one.

I thought we had another server which actually had the role FC.LOCAL at least, but that's not so. Therefore, now that I am creating a new AD server in the FC.LOCAL domain, it says that an Active Directory controller in the FC.LOCAL domain could not be contacted.

Where to go from here?

Thank you
