In order to troubleshoot this we'll need to see more information.  

[1] Are there any likely-looking errors in the Event Viewer?

[2] Install the Windows Server 2003 Support Tools if you haven't done so already, and run the following tests against the troublesome DC:

dcdiag
netdiag

Ali,

I have seen this before both on one of my DC's and on these boards, i beleive last time the only thing that we could do was to reinstall DNS completely on that box....not a great solution but one that worked for me

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

Do you have other DCs in your environment?  (If not, I would highly recommend setting up at least one additional DC for fault-tolerance.)

If you have other DCs in your environment, you can give this "problem child" a fresh start by doing the following:

[1] Run dcpromo to remove Active Directory from this DC, being careful NOT to select the check-box next to "This is the last DC for this domain."

[2] Un-install DNS using the Configure Your Server wizard or Add/Remove Programs.

Once this is done you can re-install DNS; once you've confirmed that DNS is working properly you can then re-run dcpromo to re-introduce this server as a domain controller in your environment.

Hope this helps.

you can simply go to add remove programs - windows components - and uninstall DNS, then reinstall and restart the netlogon service
