I keep getting the above message which is filling up the Application Log in Event Viewer on the DC in my W2K AD domain. Users are also complaining of slow logon authentication to their PC's.

Source - userenv

That would very much suggest a problem with your DNS configuration.

For an AD Domain all clients and servers should refer to a DNS Server that can answer requests about the AD DNS Domain. Generally speaking this means the Domain Controllers on your network (which should be hosting a Forward Lookup Zone for your domain).

If they refer to anything else, whether ISPs DNS Server or another internal server that can't answer their questions you end up with GP errors, slow logons and general authentication problems.
