Server not operational
Posted on 2007-08-02
I have a simple AD network consisting of 2 domain controllers, and some member servers.
All FSMO roles are on server named MDC, both servers run DNS, DHCP, WINS, both are Global Catalog servers
Both servers point to themselves for the DNS resolution.
When trying to open Active Directory Users and Computers or Active Directory Sites and services I will get following errors (they are intermittent and sometimes they will pop up, but than I try again and am able to get to the console)
The Directory Schema is not accessible bacause:
An Iinvalid directory path name was passed
For this reason, The New menu may be inaccurate, and extension snap-ins may not work properly.
Data from Active Directory Users and Computers [MDC.domain.com]is not available from domain controller MDC.domain.com bacause:
The server is not operational
Try again later, or choose another domain controller by selecting Connect to Domain Controller on the Domain Context menui
Nameing information cannot be located for the following reason:
Server in not operational
How do I correct that?
Group Policies would not work and I get following error frequently on all servers:
Evant ID: 1030
Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.
Above error are more frequent on the server holding FSMO roles (MDC is the mane of the server)
I have tried to move FSMO roles to MBKP, but it did not fix the problem.
