Global Catalog not authenticating users

    I have 2 domain controllers. Both are global catalogs. When the DC that
    holds all roles is down, the secondary DC will not authenticate users. Both
    are global catalogs, both are DNS servers (both DNS servers are registered
    with DHCP) and all clients are showing both DNS servers in their settings
    (ran ipconfig /all). Any suggestions? Thanks

    Run diagnostics against your Active Directory domain.

    If you don't have the tools installed, install them from your server install
    disk.
    d:\support\tools\setup.exe

    Run dcdiag and netdiag in verbose mode.

    If you download a gui script I wrote it should be simple to set and run. It
    also has the option to run individual tests without having to learn all the
    switch options.

    The script is at http://pbbergs.dynu.com/windows/windows.htm, download it
    and save it to c:\program files\support tools\

    Just select both dcdiag and netdiag make sure verbose is set. (Leave the
    default settings for dcdiag as set when selected)

    When complete search for fail, error and warning messages.

    Thank you very much Paul for your help and for the link to your GUI version
    of dcdiag and netdiag. It was very helpful. I found my problem and things
    are working very well. Thanks again!
