Unable to login to my secondary Domain Controller

One of my tech disable the NIC cards on my secondary Domain Controller, now we are unable to login to that particular Controller.  Any suggestions?

Reboot into Directory Services Restore Mode, Safe Mode, or Safe Mode with Networking and log in using the DSRM password, re-enable the NIC and reboot normally.

(As an aside, this is why lower-level technicians should be restricted in the rights that they are granted on an Active Directory network - if your tech is a Domain Admin, this is a good illustration of why that shouldn't be the case.)
