Roles

by p.j.hutchison In reply to PDC & ADC Trust Relation ...

First you should make your DCs all Global Catalog servers which is what clients use to access the network (see AD Sites and services).

Roles can be moved manually using the Active Directory Users and Computers tool or the ntdsutil.exe command line tool.

The PDC emulator does only the following tasks:
a) The PDC Emulator is REQUIRED only for pre-Windows 2000 machines (XP, Vista etc can live w/o it)
b) It deals with password changes
c) Deals with authentication failures
d) Deals with account lockouts
