Answers

  • PDC Emulators: There is one PDC emulator per domain, and when there is a failed authentication attempt, it is forwarded to PDC emulator.  It acts as a “tie-breaker” and it controls the time sync across the domain.

    These are the parameters through which we can know whether PDC emulator is working or not.

    • Time is not syncing
    • User’s accounts are not locked out
    • Windows NT BDCs are not getting updates
    • If pre-windows 2000 computers are unable to change their passwords
