    hello all
    we have a win2000 network. two dc. The first dc (master) went down
    and we are working on it now. But the problem is the users are trying to log
    on to the network and its very slow..... like 7 to 10 min. Also let me add
    that these users are loging on to a terminal server. So what am i missing
    or need to recofigure so that the terminal server see that there is another
    dc. The first dc is the Catalog and im sure its the master for all roles.

  2. In addition to redundant DCs, you also need redundant AD/DNS. All machines
    (*all* machines including the DCs) in the system need to point to *all* the
    AD/DNS Services in their network settings. There will probably always be
    some delay because they would try the first DNS listed and it would have to
    "timeout" before it tried any subsequent DNS's listed.

    In other words just redundant DCs isn't enough,..all the required services
    needed for normal operation must be redundant, ...and all the machines need
    to know where those are located.
