we need more information:

- How many domain controllers?
- Are all domain controllers in the same location/subnet?
- what are the events in the event viewer?  Source, EventID, & description (you can click the copy button on the event and then paste here)

I'd look at DNS first, do you have all these machines pointed at the SAME DNS server?

portqry and it's gui front end are downloadable from MS's website and might be able to help as well. There is a trust setting in the gui just for this kind of troubleshooting.

All clients are pointing to the dc that runs dns server...

ok - all clients are... but are all servers pointing to the DC/DNS server for dns resolution?  This is ESPECIALLY important for the DC/DNS server itself (it's only DNS entry should be its own IP address).  If that is not there, remove whatever DNS entry is - add itself, and then reboot (so it will register itself with DNS)

Thanks,

Justin

Probably because you did a recent upgrade of that DC, and didnt follow the MS "approved" prcedure, rather you just upgraded the DC without prepping it first, and that almost always creates this kind of problem.

Can you please put the results of ipconfig /all from both servers here?

Justin i'm not agree, in w2k if DCs points the DNS to itself this can lead to "DNS isolation" problems, in w2k3 microsoft claim they solved the problem but i'm not sure yet.

If intellie_ex have 2 DCs the DNS configuration must be

DC1:    primary DNS server points to DC2
           secondary DNS server point to itself

DC2:    primary DNS server points to DC1
           secondary DNS server point to itself

cheers,
Walter

Walter-

Agreed - if you have multiple DCs, that is a valid configuration you are listing.  If there is only one DC, then it must list itself- from what the poster has told us (which isn't too much...) it sounds like there is only 1 DC.

My main point is: no AD servers or clients should be looking to OUTSIDE/ISP DNS servers.

Thanks,

Justin

One thing we have not talked about is the network card, it might be going bad.

I don't have the skills to explain it very well but I had a similar issue a while back and had to call MS tech support. They had it fixed in about 45mins. Basically for whatever reason the DC's AD would go down. I thought it had jumped off the network but it was more like a member server than a DC when the problem popped up. If you can call MS they were very helpful and my DC's have been healthy ever since.
