Domain Problems

By dsmallman ·
I have two NT4.0 SP6 DCs 1 PDC & 1 BDC. Lately when I try to run the User Manager or the Server Manager from the BDC I get the following message "Could not find domain controller for this domain". It does work sometimes though.

The BDC is also the WINS & DHCP server.

I have checked everything that was suggested from Microsoft and it still does not work properly. I have another server that is not a DC that works fine when I run those two utiliies.

Any suggestions? Should I remove the BDC from the Domain and then add it back?

Have you tried manually inputting the PDC name when trying to access server manager and user manager from the BDC. I know I sometimes have to enter in the PDC name.

Domain Only

Yes that does work, but I am concerned about it not working using the domain name; because to me that would indicate a problem somewhere. Wouldn't it?
