system state restore

Hey guys

My server crashed a week ago, i replaced the damaged hard drives and did a complete system restore using the windows 2008 CD complete system restore app. and restored from my backup.

This server is my dns, pdc and exchange server

Everything has restored and i can log onto the server fine and everything apppears fine until i try go into the exchange system manager  a error pops up saying it cant find my domain and then for some reason active directory goes offline.  Here is a list of erros iam getting plus the dns test amd dcdiag /fix results

Active Directory Domain Services could not resolve the following DNS host name of the source domain controller to an IP address. This error prevents additions, deletions and changes in Active Directory Domain Services from replicating between one or more domain controllers in the forest. Security groups, group policy, users and computers and their passwords will be inconsistent between domain controllers until this error is resolved, potentially affecting logon authentication and access to network resources.
 
Source domain controller:
 renaissance
Failing DNS host name:
 833cd9e5-3e1c-49c8-ab7c-3507aa40c252._msdcs.LynnEstates.local
 
NOTE: By default, only up to 10 DNS failures are shown for any given 12 hour period, even if more than 10 failures occur.  To log all individual failure events, set the following diagnostics registry value to 1:
 
Registry Path:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Diagnostics\22 DS RPC Client
 


The DNS server is waiting for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to signal that the initial synchronization of the directory has been completed. The DNS server service cannot start until the initial synchronization is complete because critical DNS data might not yet be replicated onto this domain controller. If events in the AD DS event log indicate that there is a problem with DNS name resolution, consider adding the IP address of another DNS server for this domain to the DNS server list in the Internet Protocol properties of this computer. This event will be logged every two minutes until AD DS has signaled that the initial synchronization has successfully completed





Active Directory Domain Services was unable to establish a connection with the global catalog.
 
Additional Data
Error value:
1355 The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
Internal ID:
3200d50
 
User Action:
Make sure a global catalog is available in the forest, and is reachable from this domain controller. You may use the nltest utility to diagnose this problem.

How many IPs does this system have?
Is 41.223.8.8 one of them.
Make sure your system directly references on your Local LAN IPs.
Do you have another DC in the LAN?

Hey bud

just fixed the problems took me around 4 days but just got it working :))))

Repaired all of the dns problems but the exchange server and active directory did not start working properly until i did the following.....

For future ref for peeps who dont know this and typicaly it was the last thing i checked . When you do a system complete restore for server 2008 you lose your sysvol and netlogon shares, you need to change  the reg entry sysvolread from 0 to 1
