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.
