How to Enable or Disable a Global Catalog (GC)

Open to Administrative Tools>Active Directory Sites and Services>Sites, and then double-click the domain controller you want to work with in the Server folder for your desired site: Right-click NTDS Settings>Properties. Make a change accordingly.

WARNING: Do not turn on this option unless you are certain it will provide value in your deployment. For this option to be useful, your deployment must have multiple domains, and even then, only one global catalog is (typically) useful in each site.

How to install/remove AD/DC

To install/remove AD/DC, use Promote and Demote command.

How to repopulate AD DNS entries

Manually repopulate the Active Directory DNS entries. You can use the Windows 2000 Netdiag tool to repopulate the Active Directory DNS entries. Netdiag is included with the Windows 2000 Support tools. At a command prompt, type netdiag /fix.
