10 minutes to get the logon screen

It is a new Windows 2003 SP2 server. Is is configured as a second AD serveur in an existing domain.
I first installed the DNS service, then I made DCPROMO to make it a second AD server in an existing domain (the DNS zone is integrated to AD). All was OK and no error.

Finally I wanted to change DNS server (in TCP/IP properties) to 127.0.0.1
If the DNS server (in TCM/IP properties) point to the previous DNS serveur the server boot OK but when I change the DNS server (in TCP/IP properties) to my own DNS 127.0.0.1, it needs about 10 minutes to get the logon screen. And the event ID 5781 (souce Netlogon) is logged in the system log event

I gess I have a DNS or AD problem, but I do not know how to solve
Thank you

When you multiple DCs you shouldn't use the 127.0.0.1 address. Even with one DC you can cause problems. You should always put the correct IP address in the TCP\IP properties which will allow correct registration of your DNS records. Make sure put the correct IP address then do a netdiag /fix
