Without something a lot more specific, help's not going to be forthcoming. You're asking for nonspecific and deep troubleshooting information.

I agree - a very vague question.

I start by monitoring the event logs.  MOST issues will report themselves there.  From there, you need to know how to troubleshoot whatever it is that is failing... FRS? AD? DNS?  DHCP?  SQL? Exchange? Something else?
