  • adding BDC to PDC

    hello,
    I am trying to add the BDC to current PDC server. all are 2003 servers. We need to connect to PDC with user name and password from BDC. what I want to know is the password is the PDC domin adminstrator password or ? PDC Directory Service Restore Mode Administrator Password?
    I forgot the Directory Service Restore password of PDC. If like that how can I try to reset the password for Directory Service Restore password of PDC ?
    thank!

    Re: adding BDC to PDC

    BDC's and PDC's are NT4, since Windows 2000 all DC's are peers. In exceptance of the FSMO role holders.
    I find your question a bit unclear. omain accounts are equal throughout the domain. So I guess your not talking about a domain account. If your talking about the Active directory restore account, this account is only known to local on the DC. So every DC could have a different password. If you do not remember the AD restore password on a DC, you can reset it usign NTDSUTIL.

    E:\ntdsutil>ntdsutil
    ntdsutil: set dsrm password
    Reset DSRM Administrator Password: reset password on server %ServerName%
    Please type password for DS Restore Mode Administrator Account: %Password%
    Please confirm new password: %Password%
    Password has been set successfully.

    Reset DSRM Administrator Password: quit
    ntdsutil: quit

    E:\ntdsutil>
