Re: primary domain controller is down


Adding to other's valid responses, you sould know that there isn't such
thing as Primary Domain Controller as you had in Windows NT.

You should also make sure that any other server roles that were performed by
the demoted DC are transfered to this new one. DHCP,DNS,DFS,WINS,etc.

I hope that the information above helps you

be the primary domain controller?

I have differents questions?
What can i do?
Must i promote it as primary domain controller ou is it by default because

What is the procedure by step in this situation,it is very important and
critical manipulation.
