If I have Windows PCs that are joined to a domain and the domain controller goes offline, what kind of behavior can I expect on the clients (assuming there is no second DC?)
Will users be able log on? Or perhaps a better question, how does login functionality change, if at all?
Obviously file shares on the DC won't work, but what about shares between clients, or between them and a member server?
Once the DC has recovered, do the clients need to restart, log off/log in? Are there any long term consequences from being disconnected from the DC?
Ultimately I'm interested in what complaints I should expect to receive from users if the DC is offline. Feel free to mention any other important information that I haven't covered.
