Look through the event logs... if you have multiple DC's make sure that when you create a user account, this account replicates to the other DC's.

Check to make sure when you do, \\dcservername  that you see the netlogon directory.  This directory won't show, if there is a problem.

I would run DCDIAG and NETDIAG to verify the domain...  Look for errors in the output:  http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/Library/f7396ad6-0baa-4e66-8d18-17f83c5e4e6c1033.mspx?mfr=true

Make sure that you can create AD object like user accounts....

Verify that you DNs service is running and working.  Maybe use NSLOOKUP to verify that DNS queries are working.
