Eperts good morning,
I'm confronting the following issue, I have a windows 2000 DC and a child 2000 server, everytime I restart the DC after it log on it takes almost 10 minutes to become available aftr that I can start open the mapped network drives, can anybody know what could be the source of the problem?

Thank you in advance

Configure DCs to use the other DC/DNS as secondary DNS.

The error message indicates incorrect DNS-configuration.
Can you post ipconfig/all for the server?
