Error

Explanation:

Each domain should have only one primary domain controller (PDC). Two PDCs exist in the domain because one of the PDCs stopped working for an extended period. A backup domain controller (BDC) was then promoted to PDC. Now the original PDC is working again.

User Action:

Demote one of the PDCs.
