Things don't happen suddenly .... remember what was the last change you did to your AD ?
Do you ahve only those 2 domain controllers or more ?

Only two.
The only change I made was to remove the system login account from Veritas Backup Exec on the other server.

System Login Account still controls Backup Exec on this server and as most Services.  Everything works.

Problem Solved.

Some idiot (whoops, that's me) put the Guest account in the Administrators Security Group.

Solution is to download and install the adminpak to another PC, so you can remove the Guest from Administrators Security Group.

Log off and log on ....problem solved.
