Hi,

controller. Now, I have two w2k with BDC function. how can i promo original
PDC to be a new PDC from BDC. thanks.

In NT there are no PDCs and BDCs the DCs work on
a peer to peer level. There is a PDC emulator role which
is usually the first DC of the domain. Transfer the PDC
emulator role.

Why doesn't W2k3 server have a PDC and BDC? In NT
changes can only be made on the PDC e.g., a machine will
have to contact the PDC for all security changes. The changes
are then replicated out to all BDCs on the domain. W2k or
higher DCs work on a peer to peer basis meaning changes
can be made on all DCs and replicated out to all DCs of the
domain. For backwards compatibility the first DC of a W2k
or higher domain will act as the PDC emulator role holder.

If the DC that went down was the first DC in your forest, chances are it
held all 5 FSMO roles (RID, Infrastructure, PDC, Domain Naming, and Schema
Masters) You will need to seize all five of these roles since the original
crashed and was not restored from backup. You will also need at least one
Global Catalog, too.
