Unable to Login Domain Controller After Reboot
Posted on 2008-10-21
I installed some Windows updates on both domain controllers in our off site office and reboot them, one at a time. After the first one came back up, I reboot the other one and now when it came up, it was very very slow, took forever for it to bring up the Windows Login, and I notice I don't have the option to login to the domain. Meaning when I expand Options there is no Domain box for me to login to the domain. I tried logging on locally and so far cant', also everytime I try to login it takes so long for it to come back and tell me it can't login. I can't reboot it right now as it's over 100 miles away, I'm going to have to send an email to somebody in that office to power it down and on first thing in the morning and I have no idea if that's going to hopefully make it work, I'm really hoping so because I'm sorta a network admin newb so I'm very scared as to what is happening here. What should I do if rebooting it doesn't help? What sucks is it's the only DNS server in that domain too so there is no DNS server running on that domain either now because of this. Help!
