  • Mixed domain

    We have a mixed domain with both 2000 server DCs and 2008 server DCs. This is just a temporary phase and the 2000 DCs will be demoted further ahead.

    But for now we are "mixed". The problem we have right now is that our clients (windows 2000) doesn´t use the 2008 DCs at all. All log-ons takes place on the old 2000 DCs. If I check the Event Viewer I can see that computer accounts is validated on all DCs, but user accounts only on the 2000 DCs.

    We have two sites:

    Site 1: 1 2000 DC and 2 new 2008 DCs
    Site 2: 1 2000 DC and 1 new 2008 DC

    I have used repadmin and dcdiag to verify that the replication works and it works fine.

    Any ideas what could be wrong??

    It will depend on the location of the PDC role to a certain extent. You could try moving the PDC FSMO role to the w2k8 DC to test, out of hours, so you have time to test.

      Hi,

      You could lower the priority or increase the weight of the SRV record in DNS for the 2008 DCs.
      That way they'll be at the top of the list provided by the DC locator process.
