I did that earlier, but it still did not work. One person told me that, I could not joined a Linux computer to the other windows 2000 server PDC is because the second one does not have a writable copy of the global catalog. Its global catalog is read only. This is why I got that error.
Both win 2000 server belongs to the same domain (please read the previous email posting on this same thread.). You are correct. I was trying to join to the secondary machine to test just in case if the prmary win 2000 server PDC is down, would a Linux computer be able to join the secondary win 2000 server ? The answer is no.
I have two windows 2000 server and both are part of the domain named weboffice.net
server # 1: win-2000-server
server # 2: win2000server1
server # 1 is the top most computer in the domain weboffice
server # 2 then joined server# 1.
Both server belongs to a domain name of weboffice.net
Both server can replicate to each other just fine.
I delete the Linux computer account on both server, then I joined it to win2000server1 and it worked.
I guess, sometime the computer account is corrupted, and must be delete.
