The DNS cache is hosted by the "DHCP Client" service; do NOT disable this service, it is required even if the machine is not configured to use a DHCP address.

Service Manager, DNS Client (that's the DNS Cache service).

I tried to start the DNS client but I get the following message " Error 1079: the account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running the samr process". I check the account of my other DC and they are both the same:  NT Authority\Network Services.

That's a lovely vague error message isn't it?

You might try changing it to Local System, although you shouldn't need to. I'm a bit short on suggestions for that one otherwise.

Compare the accounts of the other (Microsoft) services as well; there are several services that are started from the same svchost.exe process.
