Client can't log on to domain RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hello!

    We have single Domain 2 DC in same subnet ,both of them are integrated domain and have DNS&DHCP that works right.

    If DC A is down for maintenance  My client can't log on to domain. DC A holds most of the FSM role (Schema owner, Domain role owner, Infrastructure owner) when DC B holds (PDC role, RID pool manager)

    They get error that say " make sure your username and domain are correct "

    I try to connect from couples' computer whit different users but get the same error.

    What we should do to get over on this problem.

    Thanks.

    That should be a resolution problem. Make sure that your client computers are pointing to the second DC as a secondary DNS server. Also, make sure that the second DC is a DNS server.

    Even if it is the holder of FSMO roles, if this holder is down your client computers should be able to logon.

    I think that you have also replication problems. Looks like passwords had been changed and this change have not been replicated to the second DC.

    Please use Microsoft Skydrive to upload the output of these commands on all DCs that you have:

    ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt [from each DC/DNS Server]

    dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:dcname >c:\dcdiag.txt

    repadmin /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite >c:\repl.txt  ["dc* is a place holder for the starting name of the DCs if they all begin the same (if more then one DC exists)]

    dnslint /ad /s "DCipaddress" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321045)

    Once done, post a link here.
