BUsted Trust Relationship Blues.

By dwilliamsamh ·
My boss decided to change an NT PDC for Domain "b" to a BDC in DOmain A without my knowledge. The new BDC can't log on to the PDC to synchronize user security database information because the PDC still sees the BDC as having had a trust relationship that is no longer valid and tells me to re-establish the trust. Well since the BDC is no longer in another domain, you can't establish a trust relationship. Will changing the Name and IP address of the BDC allow the PDC to see it as a new server that has joined its domain and thus synchronize WINS and User Security Databases? Or is there some other proceedure that must be run first?

There is no way that a BDC can TRULY move from one Domain to another.
Your boss may have done some some tricky renaming, and that is what has caused the problems.
I recommend going into reverse, undoing all the changes that he has made, then take stock.
Ask your self what do you want to achieve. If the answer is the machine must move, then
it is a re-install NT job.

If this server is to remain in the new domain NT will have to be reinstalled. This is a built-in security measure to disallow someone from bringing in a laptop (PC), conecting it to the existing network with NT server installed on it and going to town.

Good luck,

Al

No, changing the name will not change the SID the two machines generated at their initial setup/ Changing the IP address has nothing to do with this problem.
I have done just this with a test setup and all I had to do was put the PDC back into itsrole as the PDC for its orginal domain. Have you tried that?

Go to winnt\profiles\all users\start menuIn the start menu folder create a new folder. In the new folder name block put the following string:
Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
Just copy and paste the above string into the name block for the folder.
This will create a link to control panel which you can access via the start menu. It lists alphabetically.
I use this all the time on my machines. It works for Win9x machines also.
