Client had a powercut a short while ago, their old domain has collapsed, and I have to admit I'm on call and a bit out of my depth. Typically all my usual backup and fall back are unavailable.
No SYSVOL or NETLOGON are showing on either DC. No replication happening. Unable to authenticate anything against the domain.
simple single forest/single domain hosted across two servers. Functional Level : 2000
Server 1 : Accounts-2K Windows 2000 SP4 DNS DHCP FSMO : Domain Master Simple File Shares SQL
Server 2 : Barn-SRV Windows 2003 SBS Exchange DNS FSMO : RID Schema PDC Infrastructure Simple File Shares SQL
The current situation.
I have been attempting to demote Server 1, in the hope that this would remove the outstanding issues I have with replication.
Neither server can replicate in either direction.
File Replication logs are showing : http://eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=13559&eventno=657&source=NtFrs&phase=1
DNS logs are showing http://eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1004&source=dns
The reverse lookup zone for the primary (and only) subnet is showing error and can't be displayed

This suggests a DNS issue, but I'm not sure if that s the cause or the symptom. Can I try reinstalling DNS?
I can ping the other server from this one, ping to domain.local resolves correctly to the other DC.
Server 2 Logs are showing http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=13508&eventno=349&source=ntfrs&phase=1
which looks promising to me. Surely it just needs to complete that action and it will bring up the domain?
DNS is showing issues enumerating from the other DC, unexpectedly at the moment.
Everything pings from this server as expected.Anyone got any ideas? Everyone will be turning up for work soon and I'd like them to be able to work.
Thanks in advance.
