DNS error with my Domain controller

When I run a dcdiag /q on my sole DC, i get the following error

the host 1423423-cc80-xxxxxxxx._msdcs.domain.local could not be resolved to an ip address. Check dns, DHCP, server name, etc.

............................ IMDC01 failed connectivity test.

I have deleted the _.msdcs records, all DNS zones, recreated DNS zones, restarted DNS services and netlogon service, which recreated all the _msdcs records. Yet same problem.

Anyone have any ideas? The dns IP is correct on the card.

This was a restore, and I believe there are issue with the recovery. How do I clean up or have the DC fixed?

I have read the netdiag /fix would do the trick, yet I can not locate the executable on windows 2008 R2 to use it.

Netdiag is removed from Windows Server 2008. Now, you need to use dcdiag.

Please try to run in command-line

dcdiag /fix

is this an environment with just a single DC or do you have multiple DCs ?

are there any errors in the directory services event log or the file replication event log ?

If this is a recovery of a failed DC you may need to perform a metadata clean-up... http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816907(WS.10).aspx
