My servers started acting wacky yesterday.  I'm seeing this error message in the DNS event viewer.
The DNS server was unable to open Active Directory. This DNS server is configured to obtain and use information from the directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and reload the zone. The event data is the error code.

One tech told me to run the NETDOM command, but when I do it asks for a switch to use.
