You need to first go through the logs on those DCs and also run dcdiag and see what sort of errors you are getting on those DCs that are having this problem.
So all you did was just promote a new box and nothing else?

DCDiag show these errors.
I add the server to domain. (not as ADC yet) then I start having problem.  so I tried to add new server as ADC. the new server added OK to the domain but I still having the same problem.
