Have looked through the KB, but the answers found have not helped thus far.  

I had come into a network that was not getting out.  found that the DNS Server on the DC was 'not there'. I added a secondary AD integrated DNS server to the Exchange 2003 box, which I had to reinstall the DNS Server on the current 2000 DC , set the forwarders and made the necessary changes to get the network up and running.  Which all went well yesterday.  

I returned to a system that is having intermitten problems:  exchange email isn't updating, though the outlook clients say they are connected, Phone service seems intermitten, but most of all is this NETLogon error on the DC

Reset the ipsock and winsock using the following commands:
- netsh winsock reset
- netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt


delete the record in question & stop & restart the netlogon service

This command does not work on Windows 2000, I receive a bad syntax error.

I have deleted the record, but it will not update or kicks the 5447 error.
I have even tried to manually register it with no solution...
