I had recieved the error below, and i also tried to the solution recommend on the reply to my question. This did not work to fix my problem so i reverted back to the copy of the original boot.ini and when i load into the OS i can't connect to my domain (exchange) I Looked to see if i had services turned off and the exchange services that are set to automatic will not start because it can't find the domain. I am needing anything to get my domain found with the users. On my IMAP4SVC service i'm getting an error with Event 1040 part of the reason i can't connect to my domain.

Origianal Question
Event ID: 5774
Question: I am still receiving the following error after looking at other solutions for this even error. The error is as follows:

Registration of the DNS record '_kpasswd._tcp.xxxxxxxxx-xxx.com. 600 IN SRV 0 100 464 exchange.xxxxxxxxx-xxx.com.' failed with the following error:
Bad DNS packet.

Solution i tried to do and it failed

Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (any edition)
Edit the BOOT.ini file and add the parameter "/usepmtimer," then reboot the server. Adding the "/usepmtimer" parameter to the BOOT.INI file configures the Windows operating system to use the PM_TIMER, rather than the Time Stamp Counter.

What if you disjoin the computer from the domain and then join it back again.

i think that it's giong back to something with the time stamp counter because(even though i'm on the orginal boot.ini) it hangs on the preparing network connections @ the start and then gives me a message that says one or more services failed to start. I was able to connect to the exchange domain and see my users but i still can't get the following services to start that are set to automatic.

I'm getting a warning that i think may be the cause from that time stamp.

WMI ADAP was unable to process the PerfDisk performance libary die to a time violation in the open function

Have you tried to reinstall your NIC drivers?   Also can you ping the exchange server?  Is your DNS server operational?

it actually turned out that we had some .log files that where deleted and our Active Directory was trashed with a system error. we ran the eseutil.exe on our priv1.edb  It was able to repair the database. We are having to reload the exchage server but this time we are going to make it part of our main domain not it's own domain. Once reloaded we are going to try and rebuild our database to recovery some of the mail.
