Event 1054: Windows 2008, Domain not operational

I am trying to update some folder permissions.  I could not do it.  I then started getting all kinds of errors.  I can't open ADUC.  I can't get into the group policy.  I can't do a gpupdate.  I am pretty desperate.

I am constantly getting Event 1054 in the event viewe.  Any suggestions.  

Help Please.

This might be caused by a DNS misconfiguration in the TCP/IP properties on the server. Please run an ipconfig /all on the server and post the results.  An SBS server needs to be pointing to itself, and only itself, for DNS resolution.

I can also not get to \\server\sysvol.  It errors out.

I think this is also maybe a problem.

Is this the SBS server?  The problem is most likely being caused by the fact that your DNS server are not set properly.   This is a server, so its IP address should be static, not set through DHCP. It looks like this machine is using a DHCP reservation rather than a static IP. Also, it must be pointing to the SBS server for DNS primary, and then to any other DNS server on your network (if there is one) as a secondary. This is definitely the reason that you are not able to connect to the domain.

I see it set static.  It is a SBS server.

Can I unload and reload DNS?

You might try changing the ::1 (IPv6 Loopback) to the IP address of the SBS server.  You can leave the IPv4 Loopback in place, and run an ipconfig /flushdns from the command prompt.

I set the loopback the same as the fixed and I don't think that helped.  I have scheduled a restart for later tonight hoping that this helps at all.  I will post when I know.

You can also try restarting DNS and see if the helps.

I am not sure that this worked but a complete power off and restart did.  Thanks,
