Windows 2000 server DC Crash
Posted on 2014-03-26
I have a Windows 2000 server that is a PDC, it has crashed with a hardware failure
Lets say the domain name is mycompany.com
Users there are logging in and are being authenticated by a BDC.
They can't see their files anymore, but that is not my priority right now
In a child domain, lw.mycompany.com I am now having user logon problems.
If a user trys to log in they get the message: "The username or password is incorrect"
If I change the password at the lw.mycompany DC to another password, it still fails.
If my login problems are being caused by the PDC failure, I don't see how.
Users in the lw.mycompany.com domain login to the lw.mycompany domain, not the mycompany.com domain
I need to get these users logged in, can someone please help?
