Try running netdiag, repadmin and dcdiag. Look for fail, error and warning
errors.

If you don't have the tools installed load them from your install disk.

d:\i386\adminpak.msi (Server tools for remote management of servers)
d:\support\tools\setup.exe (Server Utilities)

Copy the following to a cmd file and run look for error, fail and warn
within the reports. Post any errors you can't figure out. make sure you
modify DC_Name to the name of a dc in your domain.

@echo off

c:
cd \
cd "program files\support tools"

del c:\dcdiag.log
dcdiag /e /c /v /s:D C_Name /f:c:\dcdiag.log
start c:\dcdiag.log

netdiag.exe /v > c:\netdiag.log
start c:\netdiag.log

repadmin.exe /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite > c:\repl.txt
start c:\repl.txt

Ok it sounds like you might not have a fsmo role holder that is currently up
and running.

per the KB http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=839879 get the
info but hold off on the resolution

basically I'm wondering about your rid master for starters, post the rid
feedback in here. I will be gone for a couple of hours but will check up on
it when I get back.

I am having the same problem and it was suggested that I view this posting
string. when I run dcdiag i get the following result.
D:\I386>dcdiag

Domain Controller Diagnosis

Performing initial setup:
Done gathering initial info.

Doing initial required tests

Testing server: Default-First-Site-Name\MCS_SERVER2
Starting test: Connectivity
MCS_SERVER2's server GUID DNS name could not be resolved to an
IP address. Check the DNS server, DHCP, server name, etc
Although the Guid DNS name
(f7e23a0a-e7f4-4d97-be3f-47abec878a50._msdcs.MCS) couldn't be
resolved, the server name (MCS_SERVER2.MCS) resolved to the IP
address
(192.168.0.4) and was pingable. Check that the IP address is
registered correctly with the DNS server.
......................... MCS_SERVER2 failed test Connectivity

Doing primary tests

Testing server: Default-First-Site-Name\MCS_SERVER2
Skipping all tests, because server MCS_SERVER2 is
not responding to directory service requests

Running enterprise tests on : MCS
Starting test: Intersite
......................... MCS passed test Intersite
Starting test: FsmoCheck
......................... MCS passed test FsmoCheck
I dont know if the same thing is going on for both of us but it sounds close.
Thanks for any help you can give.

It appears you are going to need to transfer the rid fsmo role for starters.

You will have to seize it, follow the directions in the KB below, under
Seize FSMO roles.
