Q

Will my BDC still replicate with the PDC after a Win2k upgrade?

When I upgrade my PDC (primary domain controller) to Windows 2000 with AD, will my current BDCs (backup domain controller) no longer replicate with the PDC/DC (domain controller) for the purpose of updating login scripts? If I make a change to the login script on the PDC/DC, will it still replicate to the NT4 BDCs? Thanks.
Nope. Once you upgrade the NT4 PDC to Windows 2000, the NETLOGON share (where the logon scripts are stored) will no longer automatically replicate. You can get around this by using a scheduler and some copy batch files or software. Install the Windows 2000 Resource Kit and look for Lbridge.cmd, an MS script to help with just this issue.
