I have inherited a 5 domain forest and the previous owner made all the DC's
in 2 of the domains all Global Catalogs.  I don't need this many GC's around
but I can't find any documentation on how to reset the group membership
infomation in AD once you put the infrastructure master on a DC that is not a
GC anymore.  The DC that is no longer a GC does not return correct group
membership for users anymore.  I have made the DC a GC again but need to know
if there is a way to fix this or is it too late and these 2 domains must
always have 100% GC's in them.  I can find all kinds of info telling me not
to do this but no info on how to fix.
Thanks..
