JSI Tip 3610. Global Catalog returns outdated Universal Group information?

When you demote a server from a Global Catalog server to a domain controller, the other domain controllers on your network may still continue to use this server to enumerate Universal Groups. This can cause some queries to return outdated or incomplete information.

To workaround this issue, reboot the server after you demote it. This will cause the other domain controllers to to discover another Global Catalog server.
