  • How to replicate active directory from PDC to DC?

    Hi,

    I am using two Windows 2003 Server, one as PDC and the other as DC. I noticed that there is active directory in the DC also, but when I opened the active directory, it prompted "Naming information cannot be located because: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted". I thought the active directory will be replicated from PDC to DC automatically, but it seemed not. Any ideas to replicate the active directory to domain controller?

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    TKT

    Probably DNS issues. Configure your DNS properly.

      I think there is a little confusion here. In Win2k3 there is no PDC (not in NT4 terms anyway). There is PDC emulation for legacy systems. Are you sure that both the computers are domain controllers?

      On your Windows 2003 DC (or as you call it PDC), goto Adminstrative Tools - Active Directory Sites and Services

      In there goto sites, default first site name, servers. Are both your servers in there?

      When you have established this then we can move on in diagnosing the problem.

          Yeah It seems its a DNS Issue. Please check your DC DNS Records. Worth renaming NETLOG.DNS file to NETLOGON.old an stop/start Netlogon Service. Please do post Event Logs of the DC.
