    Thats a pretty common thing to have to do. Just follow this artical to reclaim the FSMO roles. There is no such thing as a PDC in 2003 really, any active directory server can be transferred to the master roles using this technique.

    Question

    i dont know what is going on but it has gone from bad to worse to oh my god and i am not even soposed to be in (Im not well lol) seems to be working but here is the problem
    on dc1 active directory working fine but when on a mmc and click connect to controller and select dc2 tells me unable to connect to domain controller access denied.

    now on dc2 active directory working fine when on a mmc click connect to dc1 and that works fine

    dc1 has fmso roles dc2 is gc

    This has had me in work for 4 hours (In sick time) trying to sort out.

    Ok this has freaked me out taken all day and then i was about to give up and everything worked (could not tell you how) might have just been it needed to replacate but i dont know.
