Last week, we brought in 2 Server 2K8R2 machines, prepped the existing Win2K DC's for 2008, joined the 2k8 machines to the domain, made them DC's, transferred FSMO roles, and all seemed to work well. Final test was to verify our Xserve (10.5.8) still accepted AFP authentications from our AD bound Mac laptops if the final Win2K DC was taken offline.

It doesn't.

If we pull the ethernet cord on the Win2K DC, nobody can authenticate to the Xserve. Plug it back in, and everything works.
To troubleshoot, I've
-Set the primary DNS of the Xserve to one of the 2K8 DCs
-enabled NT4 authentication methods as listed in
-verified that no preferred DC is set in Directory Utility

Neither of these effect the issue.

Does anyone know what would prevent an Xserve from authenticating users when bound to a domain upgraded from 2k to 2K8R2?
