"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

On 2003 you should check the event viewer, as there is no separate service for AD. Whereas on 2008 you have the Active directory service.

But if you have any doubts you should definitely check the event viewer in all instances..

In 2008 there is the AD Domain services service you can check.  You can open AD users and computers for another quick test.

I'll reboot my DC and look for the an event id too.  

Thanks

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

depends on what the issue is, sometimes yes a reboot might be the only option but not always the case.
