I ran a Netdiag test to trouble shoot an event id 1054. In th NetBT name test it passed but also issued a warning You don't have a single interface with the <00> 'WorkstationService', <03> 'Messenger Service',
<20> 'WINS' names defined.

Do you have firewalls enabled ony our DC's?

Have you tried to manually resolve your DC DNS names using nslookup?

Try doing a: DCdiag /fix
and a: NetDiag /Fix

This usually means nothing. The Messenger service is disabled by default in W2k3, so the <03> entry will never be registered in WINS, and you will always have this error in netdiag.
It depends of course as well on whether NetBIOS is enabled to start with, and whether you're using a WINS server.
But either way, this error has no real importance as far as AD functionality is concerned, as NetBIOS is not vital to it.
