Unable to local DC ......... URGENT

Jolyn

Hi,

Urgently need solutions for the following error.

Originally I have 2 DCs. Due to the fact that one of them have problem, so
it was reformatted and promote as a 2nd DC again. I log in to windows as
Adminsitrator user.

Now I have many errors:
(1.) On the new 2nd DC, i have error in system log every 2 min, Evend ID
16650 from source SAM stating "The account-identifier allocator failed to
initialize properly. The record data contains the NT error code that caused
the failure. Windows 2000 will retry the initialization until it succeeds;
until that time, account creation will be denied on this Domain Controller.
Please look for other SAM event logs that may indicate the exact reason for
the failure."

(2.) On both DCs, I have Event ID 3096 The Primary Domain COntroller for
this domain could not be located.

(3.) On both DCs, I'm also unable to open/access Domain Controller Security
Policy or Domain Security Policy, error message Failed to open the Group
Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights. The specified domain
either does not exist or could not be contacted.

(4.) I execute DCdiag /v on the old DC, get the following

Hello Jolyn,

Was the crashed machine the FSMO role holder? Did you move them before to
the other DC? From the output you posted, it is node1. So please give some
infos about server names, which is the old, which is the running and which
is the new one.
Also it seems that you have not removed the old entries from Active directory
after starting the rebuilding. Just deleting is not enough and also using
the same name is giving conflicts. So please describe more detailed what
you have done.

Here are some links about moving/seizing the 5FSMO roles and removing orphaned
dc's from active directory:
