A device attached to the system is not functioning

Active Directory domain.  Four server 2003 domain controllers.

DNS was being handled on a Linux bos.  This past weekend, changes were made to make DC#1 the primary DNS server.  Zones have been AD integrated  (I wasn't involved so I don't know what that entailed..)

Today I noticed when I created a new user, the email addressing was not being supplied.  I checked the Exchange server under Recipient update service and found that its properties were pointing to DC#2.  On a whim I changed it to point to DC#1 - the recipient policies began to work.

However, when using Group Policy, I am unable to make a change.  When I select an OU, right click and select "Link an existing GPO,"  I get the error, ""a device attached to the system is not functioning."

What to do?

The Group Policy Management was configured to use DC#2.  Once we changed the configuration to point to DC#1, the changes were made.

Restarting DC#2 cleared other errors we were seeing (replication, etc)
