Active Directory Server is not available in Exchange Management Console in SBS 2008

When ever I log on to Exchange Management Console in SBS 2008 as the administrator created during setup, I am getting the message that "Active Drectory Server xxxxxx is not available. Error message: A local error occurred"

This problem started a couple of days back and till then there was no problem. Now I am not getting the SBS reports and faxes in my mailbox which were coming  before this issue arose.

I am unable to send any mails through it.

To give a little more background, the domain has not been configured and registerd by RConnection.com, a division of Register.com since 18 May 2009 inspite of repeated requests. Because of this the full functionality of the Exchange cannot be got.


I shall be grateful if I can be guided to resolve this issue.

Yes, Fix the Network has been run from the todo list and the error message has been shown above. It gives SMTP error.

Unfortunately no advice was forthcoming. I did a clean install of SBS 2008 and now everything is working normally.
I am worried that why did this happen and what measures can one take to prevent such a scenario.
