We have this experience almost every other day that the Domain Controller just not pinging and users cannot connect to the DC, when I try to ping the DC its timed out, then for a few minutes it will get back by itself... very strange, hope to resolved this tragic issue...

could you tell us if you find anything that could point us towards the error, inside of your EVENTLOGS on that server?

Is this occurring around the same time each day?  

If so what does your event log say is happening around that time?

Do you have AV running scans or updating around that time?
