By dmmcgrue ·
How can I setup users, whose workstation is in the domain, to log into the domain using their workstation profile when there's no BDC?

Dude, you can't be serious. This is Microsoft 101.

If you "have a domain" you MUST have a PDC. The user ids and security originate from the Primary Domain Controller. A BDC or BACKUP DOMAIN CONTROLLER is not absolutley necessary. A BDC provides quick local logins to remote regions away from the PDC and it provides a backup in case the PDC crashes. Does this help at all?
