    Replication on two servers

    Locked

    by clewisjr ·

    Hi Everybody, my ? is simple, how come when I do a replication between an existing Dc and a child in that domain (which I intend to make the DC) that I don’t see my users or terminal server/mgr/client/ etc in administrative tools.
    I can only see all of the info if I connect to that domain, but not when I’m logged into the child locally.
    I downloaded white papers from different soucres, but can seem to get a handle on it.
    Help anyone

      First let me make sure I understand your situation. If I understand you correctly, the second server (the “child”) is a member server in the domain and not a DC in a child domain. You can only replicate between DCs. In Win2K, Active Directory must be installed for a server to be a DC. The fact that you can log on to the “child” locally tells me that it is not yet a DC.

        Once a server becomes a DC in Win2K, you can no longer log on locally (to the machine vs. the domain). Once Active Directory is installed (changing the “child” into a DC) and the server is joined to the domain (occurs during the installation of AD), replication will take place automatically.
