Trust issues with logging onto new PDC

By DV8Angel ·
I had my PDC crash yesterday which also servers as my file and print server. I had to restore it from a back up. I ended up having to promote another server on the same domain to PDC now none of my NT users are able to log in at all. What could the problem be and really at this point I need some help on fixing this. Help

Trust issues with logging onto new PDC

I would check your User Manager for Domains and make sure that all users/accounts have been replicated to the former BDC (now PDC). How are IP address assigned? If they are dynamic, make sure the BDC is configured to run DHCP with adequate number of IP addresses to lease in the scope. Also, make sure that you are running WINS on that server. If you are going to be without your old PDC for a while, I would suggest assigning the IP address of your old PDC to the new PDC. Just make sure that any services (WINS, DNS, etc.) that were configured on the old PDC are now configured on the new PDC.

If you are not using WINS it may be that your users have a '#PRE #DOM:domain' entry in their LMHOSTS file for the original PDC, but not the BDC that was promoted.

Assuming this is true, if you are able to restore the original PDC, this will resolve the problem. Otherwise, you will need to add the additional LMHOSTS entry for each user.

The best bet is to run WINS.
