    Cannot locate Global Catalog server error 1355 from dcdiag

    Hi, we are running SBS 2003 SP2 in Office with several Client workstations. Today many users reported some problem of slow login to the domain. When I checked the Application Log I found two error as follows:

    Event ID 1006
    Windows cannot bind to mydomain domain. (Local Error). Group Policy processing aborted.

    And

    Event ID 1030
    Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.

    When I checked the System Log, I found this:

    Event ID 16645
    the maximum account identifier allocated to this domain controller has been assigned. The domain controller has failed to obtain a new identifier pool. A possible reason for this is that the domain controller has been unable to contact the master domain controller. Account creation on this controller will fail until a new pool has been allocated. There may be network or connectivity problems in the domain, or the master domain controller may be offline or missing from the domain. Verify that the master domain controller is running and connected to the domain.

    After this I tried running dcdiag and got the following output:

    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.

    Warning: DcGetDcName(PDC_REQUIRED) call failed, error 1355
    A Primary Domain Controller could not be located.

    The server holding the PDC role is down.
    Warning: DcGetDcName(TIME_SERVER) call failed, error 1355

    A Time Server could not be located.
    The server holding the PDC role is down.
    Warning: DcGetDcName(KDC_REQUIRED) call failed, error 1355


    I don’t have any idea about this. Somebody please help.

    You have posted enough information regarding the problem but in order to diagnose better, can you please post an ipconfig /all of the SBS server. Also can you tell me what exactly happened before the problem started? Were there any application installs, hotfix or updates installed, something changed, etc? Also which antivirus or security programs are you running? Do you have ISA involved and the firewall client possibly installed on the DCs?

    You can also use the Dcdiag command together with the verbose switch to look for additional errors. To do this, follow these steps:
    • Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
    • At the command prompt, type DCdiag /v, and then press Enter.


    When you type Dcdiag /v, you may see error messages that resemble the following:
    • Starting test: RidManager
    • Available RID Pool for the Domain is 2355 to 1073741823
    • dc01.contoso.com is the RID Master
    • DsBind with RID Master was successful
    • rIDAllocationPool is 1355 to 1854
    • rIDNextRID: 0 The DS has corrupt data: rIDPreviousAllocationPool value is not valid
    • rIDPreviousAllocationPool is 0 to 0 No rids allocated -- please check eventlog.
    • ......................... DC01 failed test RidManager
