    Hello All,

    I am having a few problems with my dc’s.

    I have three dc’s running windows 2000 advance server with Sp4 and all latest updates.

    The problem I have noticed is that only one server seems to be working as a GC. The server that is running ok crashed the other day and I noticed users couldn’t logon etc while it was down. Its backup now and all is ok for users etc but I fear I have a massive DNS issue with my dc’s.

    I have ran a few test’s suggested on here and I would like some help with trying to work out where to start looking to resolve this.

    Here is my report from DCDIAG from one of the dc’s that isn’t working as a GC.
