Hi there, have two Windows 2003 DC's (still not service packed!) running AD in windows 2000 native mode. Recently one of the DC's became unresponsive for about 30 mins when there was an issue with the Hard Drive raid. This recovered but my problem is other systems starting having problems with their AD lookups. The whole point of having to DC's is so one can take over the function of the other when their is a problem. So how do I ensure that my DC's are set up for edundancy and that services failover? It seems the other DC is doing little more then authentication and DNS, DHCP. thx Mac

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

The best thing to do is to open AD Users and Computers, right-click the domain from which the DC failed and select Operations Master from the menu. Transfer the various roles from the downed DC over to one of your replica DC’s.

Good luck!
