Small Business Server 2003 Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Just started to recieve these message in our event logs

Active Directory attempted to communicate with the following global catalog and the attempts were unsuccessful.
EventId 1655

The DNS server was unable to open the Active Directory.  This DNS server is configured to use directory service information and can not operate without access to the directory. EventId 4013

Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted. Eventid 1053
and when I use Nslookup I get the following response
>Nslookup
Server: Unknown
Address: 192.x.x.xx

**Unknown Can't find nslookup: Non -existent domain
We only have two windows server 2003 however the other is just being used as a nat server........Does not have any dns components or DHCP conmponents installed.
Everything is running off this one server.
Now we are functioning at 50% we cannot print to our network printer.
I also cannot find how to us dcdiag or nltest from the sbs cd
Need help.

once the installation was completed then you can find on the  start-programs-support tools a cmd option,go to cmd(msdsos sesion) and just run dcdiag  and netdiag from there

I try this but to no avail.. I saw this article that state to restart the NTDS ISAM which I did and I got the following EVETID  1000
Micorsoft Active Directory Startup complete, Version 5.2.3790.4568
EventId 1394 Followed (information below)
All problems preventing updates to the Active Directory Database have been cleared. New updates to the Active Directory database are succeeding. The Net Logon service has restarted.

Active Directory has located a global catalog in the following site.
 
Global catalog:
\\server.xxxx.xx.xx.x.x.
Site:
Default-First-Site-Name
But one minute later the same message came up...

EventId 1655 Active directory attempted to communicate wtih teh following global catalog the attempts were unsuccessful.

 
Any Suggestion................Again the article you provided didn't fix my problem...

Thanks for your help
