server manager computer type changes

By Cazzywayne ·
Hello: I have a situation where my bdc shows up as a lanman server in server manager. When you refresh the view, the description field changes to either a user name or a name that has a corrupt description to it. I tried promoting it to a pdc and for a while it showed win nt 4.0 primary but then went right back to showing lanman primary. This causes some users to get locked out of their account on that server only. I thought maybe if I remove it from the domain and then re add it as a bdc, that might do the trick. Any suggestions?

You seem to have a replication issue. Check the event viewer for replication problems. If the user manager is showing that the account is locked out when run from that server, but not from another server or client workstation, then the server still thinks it's a PDC. This may mean that you have more than one PDC on the domain and that is not good at all.
