Hi all:

I a newbie when it comes to Win2000 Server. I've always used NT4.0 for our office server but finally our main clinic application is compatible with Windows 2000 Server.

I just set it up for the first time and am wondering why there is no option to set it up as a PDC (primary domain controller)?

What is the compatible option that I should use???

Thanks

Drdoug

okay - not too sure on this but heres a shot - when you initially install win2k server - and its part of the network, it looks to see if there are any other servers up - if not - it makes itself the pdc - if the pdc exists then i think it should ask you if it should become the bdc... never seen or tried this - but from what little i know about it - this should be right - if i am wrong - someone wanna set me straight?
