Open Administrative Tools, Active Directory Sites and Services, default
first site name, should show your domain controllers under the default
first
site name right click each domain controller and click on properties...
if
it is a global catalog server, the check box that says "Global Catalog"
will
be checked already.
Incase the DC is not set up properly; you will see a lot of replication
errors showing up in the event viewer. 
Incase you have rebuilt the DC by restoring information from backup
tapes,
you should be pretty much OK. If you have re-installed and rebuilt the
entire information all over again, and if you have given this
re-installed
server a new name and it is showing up as a new Domain Controller, you
will
have to do a Active Directory clean up, remove all dead links that were
pointing to this machine as the Domain Controller.

ok,just one more question (thx so far!!)

in this case (that our domain works properly) our global catalog server
was the last existing DC,aight?
how can i "check" which DC is the one with the GCS ?
how can i "check" if our domain works fine? is it all, to access the
active directory users & computers from the DCs?

Yep,
That's right, since a Global Catalog is needed in order to replicate the
information from the original DC to a new DC.

we´ve set up a new DC and replicated it with the new one (ok,the other
way round) and everything looks fine (can access the active directory
from both DCs,the new and the old one)
actually, our "last" DC (this one, whicht didnt get the headcrash today)
had the global catalog,aight?

Marco,
The global catalog server is the only machine that holds all the
information
about your active directory domain. 
To set up a new DC and replicate the information, please note that you
will
need atleast one global catalog server on the domain, since that is the
only
machine that holds information about your domain. 
Restore the crashed server from tape backups.. if you have any.

Hi all!

tody early in the morning one of our domain controllers had a headcrash
:-(
our second admin said that the "gobal cataloug server" was on it

1. what is a global cataloug server?
2. can we just set up a new DC, and replicate it with the left one? (we
had 2) the outer admin said that he think that die GCS is only on ONE DC
in a domain.,..

TIA
