    Win 2k PDC question

    I have 2 Win 2k servers in domain . For the sake of argument , srv1 and srv2 . Srv1 is starting to be very unreliable , how do I configure the servers so if srv1 is unavailable , any authentication requests are passed to srv2 .At the moment if srv1 is down , no -one can logon.

    Alternative way is to make srv2 first port of call for authentication , therefore if srv1 is down it doesn't really matter .

    Both servers are DC's , srv2 has roles of PDC,RIDMaster and infrastructure .Only srv1 though is DNS server .

    Thanks , Glenn .

    You need to make srv 2 a DNS server. You should of set it up this way for redundancy originally.

    Agreed. Add DNS to svr2 and make it your primary DNS so that srv1 DNS syncs with svr2. Don't forget to add the DNS servers to your dhcp server with svr2 set as the first dns and svr1 as the second.
