LDAP Bind Unsuccessful

Have 1  Exchange 2003 sp2 server, (not a DC).  Have 2 DC’s that are also GC’s.  Every 15 minutes or so receive errors in Event Viewer.  Errors are 8026 and 8260 (LDAP Bind was unsuccessful… and Could not open LDAP session…). During these errors, members are unable to open Outlook accounts.  Also getting Event ID: 2102, (all domain controllers are not responding). Also ID: 8250 (the win32 api call 'dsgetdcnamew' returned error code [0x54b])
Both DC’s are up and running fine. Can ping from exchange and run LDP and bind to them.
Ran following:
Dcdiags: all tests pass
Dnslint: all ok
SeSecurityPrivelige is ok(Exchange Enterprise servers listed under manage and security log)
ExBPA: there is an update for NIC’s,
Exchange NIC’s have the proper DNS and Wins listed
Could NIC’s needing update cause problems like this?

That looks like DNS errors.
Make sure that you are using ONLY domain controllers for DNS. There should be no external DNS servers anywhere in the network configuration of any machine on the network. If you need to use external DNS to get effective external DNS resolution, then use forwarders on the DNS server applet on the domain controllers.

Also check for effective replication of the AD DNS zones on the domain controllers, as the error you are seeing is looking at the AD zone.

there are no external DNS entries and replication is fine across DC AD DNS zones

have already disabled AV services prior w/ no result (Symantec Endpoint) and Exchange server is bound to DC's on both port 389 and 3268 (as each Dc is also GC)

Have you try to upgrade your nic or eventually to disable teaming if exists ?

the problem was a dual nic architecture (not teamed) that had a default gateway listed on both nics. It was the same default gateway, but apparently only needed on one of the nics, not listed on both. example:
 nic 1                                                         nic 2
static ip:  10.1.777.72                              10.1.777.73
subnet:   255.255.255.0                           255.255.255.0
gateway: 10.1.777.1                                leave blank

well, though i feel stupid, maybe this will help someone else with this problem. thank you to all who sent their suggested fixes.
