Hi Bruno
What's the situation exactly? 
1. You made an rsync of the actual PDC to a development location:
what is the 'actual PDC', as is, it the original DC as in this thread?
2. What is the 'second DC'? To what are you joining the second DC?
3. Is the domain to which you attempted the join as per the thread
subject a live domain wit people using it?

Our natural reaction is to go back and start again from nothing as I
don't think we're at the stage where we can recover from a failed join.
