We have two 2003 servers running, both DC's for the same domain, with
active directory replicated between them for redundancy. Everything
worked fine during initial testing, but after mistakenly setting up a
trust between the two servers (its not needed, right?), I was unable to
access any shares on the second server (not the Global Catalogue
server), even from itself!
When I try to access the shares, I receive an error : .... Access is
denied or the domain controller cannot be located!
I tried to remove the trusts, but I then get an error - : the directory
I can ping server2.mydomain ok, and it seems as if active directory
objects are still replicating to it, but I may be mistaken. I've tried
creating new shares with liberal permissions but alas, same error!
I was considering demoting the second machine, but it is running
exchange and I am concerned that this may affect it.
