This computer was not able to set up a secure session with a domain controller in domain Xdue to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.  
This may lead to authentication problems. Make sure that this computer is connected to the network. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator.  

ADDITIONAL INFO
If this computer is a domain controller for the specified domain, it sets up the secure session to the primary domain controller emulator in the specified domain. Otherwise, this computer sets up the secure session to any domain controller in the specified domain.

Several things to look at:

1) Is your DNS Server up and running correctly?
        PING MyDomainController
 from a command prompt by the servers name.

2) Is the IP address of all the servers correct? Subnet masks?

3) Are any firewalls turned on?

4) Do you have bogus entries in the DNS records?
cmd prompt:  IPCONFIG /DISPLAYDNS

A quick and dirty workaround if the DC is up:
Go to the C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc folder and edit the hosts file and put in a line like
------------------------------
10.xx.xx.x       MyDC     #pre
------------------------------

Then from a cmd prompt:
------------------------------
IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS
------------------------------

Note that this will have to be manually changed anytime the DC name or IP Addy changes.

Can you explain why I got a C?

If you needed more help you should have asked.

What's the right grade to give?
