Not only that it handles password changes and denied authentications
because of password, account lockouts, and GPO editing and placement is
defaulted to the PDC Em.

That's not entirely correct.  The PDC Emulator provides several services
=3D
in Native Mode.   It's acts as a PDC for downlevel clients, it's the =3D
time source for the domain, and it also has a few other =3D
responsibilities.  Regardless of mixed/native mode.

Mixed mode simply allows existing NT 4.0 BDCs in the domain to exist.  =
=3D
(yes there are few other minor things with mixed-mode like TS Licensing
=3D
but that exception was really to allow for W2k TS to run in a NT4.0 =3D
Domain)

Hi Rod

A PDC Emulator is a FSMO role used in a mixed domain to act like the PDC
=3D
to
the NT 4.0 servers.

Thanks

I'm taking the 2154 class ("Implementing and Administering Microsoft
Windows 2000 Directory Services").  And, as I've mentioned on this list
before, I'm a Windows 2000 administer, by virtue of the fact that the
regular system administer has quit.

OK, so I'm asking what for most of you is a simple question.  In class,
the instructor has mentioned several times something called a "PDC
Emulator".  I know, from NT domains, that "PDC" stands for "Primary
Domain Controller".  From this class I'm getting the distinct feeling
that in a Windows 2000 Active Directory network, in native mode, that
there isn't a primary domain controller. =3D3D20

So, what is the "PDC Emulator"?
