  What is domain controller? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: PDC, BDC, backup domain controller, primary ...
Primary domain controller (PDC) and backup domain controller (BDC) are roles that can be assigned to a server in a network of computers that use the Windows NT operating system.
In Windows NT, a domain combines some of the advantages of a workgroup (a group of users who exchange access to each others' resources on different computers) and a directory (a group of users who are managed centrally by an administrator).
The domain concept not only allows a user to have access to resources that may be on different servers, but it also allows one domain to be given access to another domain in a trust relationship.

 Primary Domain Controller - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A domain is a concept used in NT server operating systems whereby a user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.
Instead, the domain controllers in these domains are all considered to be equal in that all controllers have full access to the accounts databases stored on their machines.
The PDC emulator master acts in place of the Primary Domain Controller if there are Windows NT 4.0 domain controllers (BDCs) remaining within the domain, acting as a source for them to replicate from.

 Trusts
Each backup domain controller stores a replica of the database on the primary domain controller, which is replicated periodically to distribute changes made to the main database on the PDC.
Domain B is configured to trust Domain A. As a result, if a user is successful at logging on to Domain A, Domain B assumes that the user has been authenticated properly.
Domains E and F trust one another, as do domains F and G. Domains E and G, however, do not trust each other because trusts do not pass through Domain F. If all domains are to trust each other, it is necessary to establish trust relationships between each pair of domains.

Because PDCs and BDCs keep their own copies of the database, and because the PDC and all BDCs can validate logon requests, there is no single point of failure in the domain.
Each domain in a network is identified internally by a security identifier (SID), a unique number associated with the domain.
Normally, the domain security databases are synchronized automatically at regular intervals: the primary domain controller (PDC) replicates its databases to the backup domain controllers (BDCs).

Verify that the primary domain controller is active on the network and that the administrative account and password exist on the primary domain controller.
This password must be the same as the password for the administrative account on the primary domain controller.

 Domain controller - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On Windows Server Systems, the domain controller (DC) is the server that responds to security authentication requests (logging in, checking permissions, etc.) within the Windows Server domain.
In Windows NT, the central domain controller was known as the Primary Domain Controller (PDC), of which there could only be one with this role; all other domain controllers were identified as Backup Domain Controllers (BDC).
In Windows 2000 and later the concept of primary and backup domain controllers were eliminated, partially to emphasize the multi-master replication technology available in Windows; however, there are still a number of master roles that only one domain controller can perform: schema master, domain naming master, infrastructure master, Relative ID master, and the PDC Emulator.

 Installing a Primary Domain Controller
The primary domain controller must be the first Advanced Server/9000 or Windows NT server that is installed in a domain.
If you configure a server as a primary domain controller in a domain that already exists, the result will be two domains with the same name, neither of which will operate properly.
During the installation of a primary domain controller, you are prompted for the server name, server role, domain name, and administrative account password.

 What is PDC? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Short for Primary Domain Controller, a server in a Windows NT network that maintains a read-write directory of user accounts and security information.
It is also a good idea to have at least one backup domain controller (BDC) in a domain.
Unlike Windows NT, where a PDC must be accessible to make changes to the directory, W2K relies on Active Directory's multimaster replication model to update all domain controllers when only one is updated.

 [Chapter 1] 1.4 Microsoft Implementations
The protocol that Windows domain controllers use to communicate with their clients and other domain controllers is proprietary and has not been released by Microsoft.
The domain controller is the nerve center of a Windows domain, much like an NIS server is the nerve center of the Unix network information service.
The domain controller then forms a central repository of passwords that are tied to usernames (one password per user), which is more efficient than each client machine maintaining hundreds of passwords for every network resource available.

Domain Time is a multithreaded NT service that keeps each machine clock in synch with the correct time.
Domain Time Trigger (dttrigger.exe) now allows command-line parameters so you can force a sync of the entire domain, a specific domain in a multi-domain environment, or an individual machine.
Domain Time Client runs on demand (just double-click the program), or it can be installed to run every time a user logs on, or, as of version 1.1.b.19990205, can be installed to run as a Win95/Win98 service.

The groups and users of other domains are identified by their current names to which the domain name they belong to is added.
Please note that if openshare is installed in a domain that has a unidirectional trust relationship with another domain (trusted domain), it is not possible to manage individual permissions associated with folders and documents for users belonging to the trusted domain.
If openshare is installed on a Domain Member and users access the system as local users, and not as domain users, then they must provide their server name in addition to their user names.

 kbAlertz: An Active Directory domain controller that holds the primary domain controller (PDC) operations master role ...
An Active Directory domain controller that holds the primary domain controller (PDC) operations master role (also known as the flexible single master operations role or the FSMO role) runs a thread every hour to check the access control lists (ACLs) on the following groups and all of the member objects of these groups:
If a user account is a member of one of these administrative groups because of its membership with a distribution group, the user account's ACL is checked when the thread is run and may be reset to match the ACL of the AdminSDHolder thread.
For example, if UserA is a member of Distribution GroupA and Distribution GroupA is a member of the Domain Admins group, UserA is not a member of the Domain Admins group if the user is logged on to the computer.
