Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a DC (FQDN:server.icmcpk.local) and an ADC (FQDN:file-server.icmcpk.local). Recently my DC is facing a bad sector problem so I changed the Operation Masters to file-server for all five roles. but when ever i turn off the OLD DC the file-server also stops wroking with AD and GPMC further i m also unable to join any other computer to this domain.

For Test purpose i also added a new ADC (FQDN:wds-server.icmcpk.local) but no succes with the old DC off i had to turn the old DC on and then joined it.

I m attaching the Dcdiags for all three servers.

Kindly help me so that i b able to reinstall new HDD and it can go online again.

What exactly is an ADC? –  MDMarra May 4 '12 at 10:47
    
Probably should check to see who has a Global Catalog, too –  charlesbridge May 4 '12 at 13:02
    
@charlesbridge I'd hope that they all hold a copy of the global catalog. The only time it makes sense for a DC to not hold a copy of the GC is when the Infrastructure Master needs to function as-expected in a multi-forest/multi-domain situation. In this the server holding the IM role for the forest shouldn't be a GC holder. In all other cases, there's usually not a good reason to leave it off. –  MDMarra May 4 '12 at 13:13
    
True MDMarra, but it's not a default for some reason. Someone has to check off the GC box on the DC after a dcpromo. –  charlesbridge May 4 '12 at 14:01
    
It's checked by default in 2008 and later. I'm not sure of OSes earlier than that. –  MDMarra May 4 '12 at 16:02

If I had to guess, I would say that you probably have a screwed up DNS infrastructure.

The easiest thing to do is run DNS on all three Domain Controllers. Have 127.0.0.1 be the last entry in the list for each DC and have the other two DCs listed ahead of it.

Make sure that your clients are configured to use at least two of these, preferably more.

+1 It's always a DNS issue. –  Chris S May 4 '12 at 12:49
    
ok here are some more details –  Suleman May 5 '12 at 14:04
    
ok both @MDMarra and charlesbridge here are some more details:<br/> only Server is running MS Server2k3 remaining both File-server and WDS-server are running MS Server2k8 and all three servers have global catalog. <br/>for the DNS the Server and File-server both are configured as primary DNS servers but the WDS-server is configured as the secondary DNS server.<br/> Any tip on how check the DNS?dns –  Suleman May 5 '12 at 14:15
    
@mdmarra an ADC means (Additional Domain Controller) –  Suleman May 5 '12 at 14:21
    
There is no such thing as an Additional Domain Controller. They're all peers. I also have no idea what you mean by our comment about your DNS configuration. –  MDMarra May 5 '12 at 14:57

The ForestDNSZones and DomainDNSZones both have their own FSMO Role Holders that were most likely on the Old DC as well. Please see the article here: http://msmvps.com/blogs/ulfbsimonweidner/archive/2008/07/31/how-many-infrastructure-masters-do-you-have.aspx
