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
