here is the warning what can i do ?

Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain '%1' failed. These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).

    Your error tells it all - DNS is broke. The most obviuos symptom is slow logins...

    - the workstations are manual configured for the wrong DNS server

    - the DCHP server is configured for the wrong DNS server

    - They are configured for the correct DNS server, but the server is broke.

    The DNS server must support dynamic updates, and must be authoritative for your AD domain namespace.

    If some users are OK, and some are NBG then compare ipconfig between the 2 and see what's up...
