Forest and Domain levels are: Windows Server 2003
All servers are running: Windows Server 2003 R2 /w SP2
My AD Site setup:
rootserv1 – DC, Global catalog, all 5 FSMO roles, DNS – AD integrated
rootserv2 – DC, Global catalog
childserv1 – DC, DNS (AD integrated), PDC, RID, Infrastructure
childserv2 – DC, DNS (AD integrated)
My question is, when i was powering down the rootservers for maintanence, I realized that users (workstations and user accounts exists only on the child domain), cannot log into the child domain while the root forest servers were down. I thuoght the child domain logins are indepedant of the root servers? Did i misconfigure something?
