Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain 'domain name.' failed.  These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).  

Possible causes of failure include:  
- TCP/IP properties of the network connections of this computer contain wrong IP address(es) of the preferred and alternate DNS servers
- Specified preferred and alternate DNS servers are not running
- DNS server(s) primary for the records to be registered is not running
- Preferred or alternate DNS servers are configured with wrong root hints
- Parent DNS zone contains incorrect delegation to the child zone authoritative for the DNS records that failed registration

Source NETLOGON
Event ID is 5781
this is for the above listed question

Also, if I disconnect from the DC and try to connect again the next morning I am unable to connect via rdp. I get a access denied error.

Commented:
This issue may occur if you have implemented a single-label domain namespace. Microsoft does not recommend that you use Active Directory directory service domains with single-label DNS names.

Fix possible misconfiguration(s) specified above and initiate registration or deletion of the DNS records by running 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command prompt or by restarting Net Logon service. Nltest.exe is available in the Microsoft Windows Server Resource Kit CD.

Hope this is helpfull
