Server 2003 - DNS error messages

Hi, getting several DNS-related problems in my error log today, can you please advise what may be the problem?

The issue is preventing our AD users to log on to the server.

Don't know if it's related in any way but we are only using one domain controller

Sounds like some level of corruption in your DNS Database.

If you only have one DC, then I'd suggest:
If possible, export your existing DNS zones before doing the following.
deletie your existing DNS zones from DNS console
Remove DNS Role from Server
Reboot Server
Re-install DNS Role
and then re-creating DNS zones again.

Your DHCP Server and workstations will automatically re-register their DNS names.

Alternatively read the following for assistance.
