changing domain controller clients use for authentication
Posted on 2013-11-11
recently, the domain controller for one of our remote sites was not able to replicate for few months since our vpn was down all that time so server tombstoned. I stressed to management the importance of not allowing vpn to be down this long but they didnt take my advice so anyway, now they have a dedicated high speed connection that bridges both our office sites so wanted to know how i can point the pcs in the remote site to use the main domain controller in the main office for domain authentication since they have been getting trust relationship errors in the past 2 weeks most likely due to losing connection our communication to the tombstoned domain controller so i thought by pointing to the main domain controller this would be fixed as well but just this morning when the tombstoned server went down actually, i was not able to rejoin one of the pcs to the domain after giving message that there no active directory domain controller for the domain cannot be contacted. Thanks.
