  • global catalog issue

    We have 2 Windows 2003 DC in our environemnt .

    First DC is going to depromote next few weeks due to warranty issue. this server was holding fsmo roles and all this fsmo roles transferred to Second DC . but this dc is configured as Global Catalog server previously.

    then I enabled the global catalog in my second DC and now this server is holding fsmo roles.

    Now First DC is disconnected from network. I got this below error during creation of new userid by using second DC. Please help me on this.

    " Windows will create this user account, but theuser can log on only after the user name is verified tobe unique.make sure the global catalog is available "

    1. Make sure that Meta data has been cleaned for the previous DC if you just removed it from the network or if you did a force removal of that DC.

    2. Uncheck the GC box from the second DC and check it again.
