    Hi Moshe_A,

    does netdiag itself give you more of an error

    Accepted Solution

    This is from part of the dnsapi library. You can also get this periodically when trying to open the computer mamangement snap-in.

    have you installed all of the MS service packs and ms updates?
    Are you running netdiag as an administrator and on a dc?
