Global Catalog

by Churdoo In reply to Windows 2003 Domain Contr ...

It sounds like the second DC is not a Global Catalog holder. Read the following article and follow the steps for creating the GC on the remaining domain controller.

The above should fix your immediate problem and will allow users to log in to your domain again.

Next will be to determine if the original DC will be repaired and returned to service. If not, then you will want to seize FSMO roles on the remaining DC, and remove the original DC from your active directory, per these articles.
