i have a domain with 2 domain controllers one 2003 and the other 2012. Yesterday i tried to move the FSMO roles from 2003 to 2012, the migration seemed to have worked fine, however when i remove the first DC(2003) from the network, i can't open any Active directory tool from the 2012 server, i get error as "Naming information could not be located", even user can't loggon to the domain as they will receive an error such as " No Domain controller could be found", i tried to move back the roles to the first DC (2003) but with same errors..

Has anyone faced this before.
