        Hi Sharath  
         Firstly you should check eventlogs. Check if IIS services are OK. And if there are any error messages, please post here.

Two objects in the Directory have the same proxy - /DC=uk/DC=co/DC=iSOFTGroup/DC=Development/OU=Countries/OU=IND/OU=User Accounts/OU=Contacts/OU=CTS/CN=Baskar Viswanathan and /DC=uk/DC=co/DC=uk/DC=Europe/OU=Countries/OU=UKI/OU=User Accounts/OU=Contacts/CN=Baskar Viswanathan.

For the Two objects in the domain error... see this kb article:

However that is not your problem.

For the disabled user account, see this article on my web site:

However that is not your problem either.

The other error would tend to indicate an issue with your domain controllers. I doubt if that is the problem, but have you changed any domain controllers recently? Added, removed etc?

Some version information would be good as well.

Anything related to IIS in the event log?
Has the server been rebooted recently?

Yes the clustering servers were rebooted recently.

So it is a cluster?
Anything else you have failed to mention?
Frontend/Backend for example? The server hasn't been patched?
