My server tells that i have  at least one service is in error and asking me to check the event viewer log every time i boot it up.

I open the Event Viewer and this is the message, anyone know how to fix this problem? thanks.

"The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone 104.165.68.in-addr.arpa.  This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it.  Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and repeat enumeration of the zone. The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "000020EF: SvcErr: DSID-020D071A, problem 5012 (DIR_ERROR), data 0". The event data contains the error."
