I have an environment that a 2003 R2 64-Bit Server and later added a 2008 R2 64-Bit server.
They were both set as domain controllers and replicating AD/DNS.
Over the weekend the motherboard in the 2003 box died and I'm trying to make the 2008 box the Master.
I have seized the roles based on this article http://kpytko.pl/active-directory-domain-services/seizing-fsmo-roles/
but at first AD Users and Computers would not even load.
After seizing the roles and waiting a few minutes I could see AD Users and Computers. However after rebooting i can't get into AD again and if I seize them again I can see AD Users and Computers again.
I have checked to make sure the DNS is point to the server IP and checked about everything else I can think of.
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
