    I have successfully seized the roles of dead
    domain server few weeks ago as described at:

    Using Ntdsutil.exe to seize or transfer FSMO roles
    to a domain controller
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;255504

    Now after some time i runed DCDiag.exe wich give
    me this:

    //copy-paste//
    Running enterprise tests on : xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Starting test: Intersite
    ......................... xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    passed test Intersite
    Starting test: FsmoCheck
    Warning: DcGetDcName(GC_SERVER_REQUIRED)
    call failed, error 1355
    A Global Catalog Server could not be
    located - All GC's are down.
    ......................... xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    failed test FsmoCheck
    //copy-paste//

    i tried Ntdsutil.exe again but it wont connect to
    server i'm working on and gives me error 80070057?

    //copy-paste//
    server connections: elgreco
    Error 80070057 parsing input - illegal syntax?
    //copy-paste//

    What should i do now?

    i just managed to find what was wrong..

    in Active Directory and sites old (dead) server
    folder remained in Default-First-Site-Name, i
    deleted it and FsmoCheck error went away.
    all roles are now displayed as it should, i hope
    it helps to someone..

    i noticed another failure in dcdiag bu i'll open a
    new thread for it..
