NT PDC Failure

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
When attempting to launch both User Manager and Server Manager from the PDC in Windows NT4.0, I receive the following error: 'Could not find domain controller for this domain. Do you want to select another domain to administer? I have no BDC server. Additionally, I cannot ping to the PDC from any workstation using the computer name, but I can ping to the PDC using its IP. I also ran netdom query on the PDCand got the following message
Querying domain information on computer \\Server_PDC
Computer \\Server_PDC is a domain controller for MYDOMAIN
Searching PDC for domain MYDOMAIN
Could not find domain controller for this domain
