I have a 2003 DC server on a 2003 domain, I also have an astaro gateway/filter in the reports section of the astaro it reading that the DC has over 200,000 connections in the last 24hrs, and its growing! I can veiws past reports and it only had 800000 for all of march, I ran a virus scan found nothing, looked in the processes and found nothin out of the ordinary. Yesterday we added another server as a backup DNS server and had to rebuild on of our DHCP scopes as it was not retaining settings with reboots or starting or stopping the service. Not sure whats happening her any thoughts? I know its kind of vague but thats all I have.
