MS03 -048 causing problems for our 2003 DCs

This is my first time posting. Ever since we patched our Windows 2003
Server Domain Controllers
with MS03 - 048 we've been having problems. The authentication on the PDC
was some how altered on by
the cumulative patch that it will no longer replicate with the BDC because
it no longer trusts it. This is causing
major problems for us on our network as both out of sync DCs are putting
out different information preventing
us from adding new users, adding new computers and sharing printers to name
a few. Has anyone else
experienced this problem? The event logs on the PDC is failure after
failure after failure.
What's weird is even after I uninstalled the patch the problem will not go
away and the DCs still will not sync.
However, I did not remove the patch from the BDC. I guess I can try that
out and see's if that will resolve it. I didn't
try it before because it was actually accepting logon requests and other
service requests from everyone successfully.
Then when I take the PDC offline, the BDC takes over for real and starts
failing as well.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
Marcus Ranum's new book "The Myth of Homeland Security" is now out and
is available from http://www.amazon.com/ranum In this hard-hitting
review of the homeland security business, Ranum shows us how the problem
is vastly harder than it's being made to sound, and how special
interests, butt covering, and bureaucracy are threatening to derail any
chance of making progress.
