Question about Operating Systems

1 Answer

Promote Demote Dear Teis, I am a bit embarrassed to go public with this question, so I go direct to you, as you helped me before. I have this other Domain, with two old Servers, its WinNT, and I don?t remember how I Promote/Demote when I take the PDC of the network. Do you know how? Kind regards

Hi Dolly,

Thanks for the faith in the old guy :-)

Well, you are right; I do know NT as the back of my hand, as I have had a network with NT for 5 years, until my boss forced me to go Win2003 :-)

You simply remove the PDC (as if it blow up during the night), then you go to the old BDC, and promote this one to be the PDC, and after a few hours (yawn) it’s ready.

The promotion step by step:
Log on to the BDC as an Administrator
Start Server Manager (Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Server Manager)
As the PDC is not available, a warning will be displayed "Cannot find Primary DC for <domain>"
Click your BDC.
From the Computer menu select "Promote to PDC"
Again as the PDC is not available then a warning "Cannot find Primary for <Domain>". Click OK to continue
The Netlogon service will be stopped on the BDC, it will be changed to a PDC and then the Netlogon service will be started again.
This machine is now the domain PDC.
If the PDC was online, it would automatically be demoted to a BDC when the promotion occurred.

- remember?

Thanks for the trust, do make it a habit :-)

WinNT PDC


Hi Dolly
You are always welcome :-)
The add/create user process is as follows;
- first you log on to the PDC as Administrator and add a user. Then log off the PDC and log on to the File/Print server and from Home directory add a new folder for the user making sure the folder is shared and the new user has authority granted.

It’s pretty late here in Denmark, so I´ll bee of to bed, and won´t be online again within the next 8 - 10 hours.

Bringing old DC back


DC2 is your PDC, (previusly you BDC, but promoted to PDC when DC1 was removed from the network)
Right?
You do exactly the same as you did before:
Crank you old DC1 on the network, and force it to be the PDC again, at the same time your DC2 will demote to BDC once again.

It sounds like you had a pre-release version of RDC 6.1 installed which you should have uninstalled before installing SP3.

Check this out - under "Remote Desktop Connection" you might find the solution you're looking for.
