There was a machine running Windows Server 2008. It was a domain controller. Years passed and another machine running Windows Server 2008 was added to the domain as a secondary domain controller. A few more years passed and eventually the primary failed and the secondary took control-ish. Now when I try accessing the server manager I get these kinds of errors.
The specified domain controller could not be contacted. This affects the following domain in the console: Domain: mydomain.domain The error was: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Please choose from the following options: [x] Chose a different domain controller [ ] Retry [ ] Remove this domain from the console
I have the impression that I must now promote my secondary domain controller to a primary domain controller.
Is this true? Where can I find instructions on how to do this?
