 have two domain controllers both server 2008, and the domain function level has been raised to 2008. We migrated from a single dc running server 2008 previously. If I run :

dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:win2k8dc1 >c:dcdiag.txt

Starting test: VerifyEnterpriseReferences

The following problems were found while verifying various important DN

references. Note, that these problems can be reported because of

latency in replication. So follow up to resolve the following

problems, only if the same problem is reported on all DCs for a given

domain or if the problem persists after replication has had

reasonable time to replicate changes.

What is Global Catalog

Global catalog servers store a single, writable domain and a partial, read-only replica of all other domains in the forest. A partial replica means that the global catalog stores all objects, but with a limited set of attributes on each object.

How to know the Global Catalog server?

Check the properties of the NTDS Settings object of the server object in Active Directory Sites and Services to confirm that a domain controller is a global catalog server.
