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

I have a site-to-site VPN, writeable DC in main office, Read-only DC in branch office.

Today the VPN went down, but i couldn't log in to the read-only DC - the error message came up There are no logon servers to process your request.

Since the RODC is a domain controller, there is no local administrator.

How can i ensure that i am always able to log on to the RODC with a known account in an emergency if the writable DC is not available?

You need a GC - Global Catalog - to process logon requests ;)
