Servers are all Server2003, SP1. PDC had a hard crash. Could not recover,
had a second DC with DNS (AD Integrated) running in the same site so I
seized all the FSMO roles successfully.
Deleted the original PDC from the network successfully. Ran dcdiag /fix,
netdiag /fix, repadmin /kcc on all DC's. Cleaned up Sites and Services,
deleted all site links and waited for the kcc to re-establish. Reset static
TCP/IP properties is necessary. Reset DNS to delete the dead PDC from the
name servers list.
Now running dcdiag on the new PDC runs with no errors. Running repadmin
/showreps shows successful replication.
However. running dcdiag on the DC's in the other three sites passes all
tests except FSMOCheck. The error returned is:
Warning: DcGetDcName (PDC_Required) call failed, error 1355. A primary
Domain Controller could not be located The server holding the PDC role is
Why can't the other DC's set the PDC to the correct DC that has that role??
