For the second Domain Controller, I get event log error 13508 -- "frs problem sysvol not shared." The same error as above shows up running dcdiag. Both DCs are global catalog servers and run DNS. The problem first occurred after a UPS failure caused both servers to shut down. The problem is that I can add new objects to the AD, but if I try to give user permissions on, say, a new PC, I get the error that the domain does not exist after choosing the user from a list.
Additional information from frs log files:
DC1 - error invalid partner
DC2 - error access denied
This obviously looks like a permissions problem but I have checked these and they appear OK. Also, I tried to run adsiedit on DC1 and got error "name not available CLSID:"
