This is not really an Exchange Question - but anyway... Work on one error at
a time. As for "The PDC role is down" , start by using NTDSUTIL and siezing
the PDC Role. Most errors have a code, use technet and take your time...

Good luck

Subject: [exchangelist] Really need your advice!!

I need to set up a duplicate domain, so that I can recover my exchange
server on my test environment.  The problem I am having is even getting my
active directory GC server up.  I am restoring it to another make of server,
something a lot smaller.  It starts up and the DNS works.  But when I run
the dcdiag.exe util, it comes back with  lots of errors, including error
1355, and "the server holding the PDC role is down".  

I am getting desperate as I have tried 100 different techniques in
re-building my server.
