A problem of Update winnt to win2000

hi there
I'm just going with the obvious first here if you don't mind....
Have you got DNS running? After DNS is installed, from the "run box" type in dcpromo if this server is not already a domain controller. You need active directory running in order to get this box running the same way your PDC was before.
Good luck!

Mike

one huge caveat here...I hope you promoted your BDC to PDC before you did this upgrade and then had your new W2K server join the existing domain, if not, you might have a new SID on your domain.
