It is advisable to have multiple GCs in an AD environment for fault
tolerance. GC is not an FSMO role. Hence you may have multiple GCs
without any problem. It is a very good fault tolerant approach for the
AD applications such as Exchange 2000 that needs to talk to a GC

        Are you aware of any issues involving multiple global catalog
masters?  We have been having problems with the GC on our Domain
Controller and are thinking of making another server a GC also.  Do you
see any problems with this?

        Thanks in Advance!
