Today when I arrived at work, the server was not working. I have had some trouble with this server for a week. The server stop working and I havent been able or had the time to resolve this problem. The solution was to restart the server and the managed switch and it worked for a while.

But today when I came to work, the restart of the server did not work. I found out that the clients could not map drives, could not print or in any way communiqate with the server. I could ping the server adress When I searched the server for errors the DNS was not working. After repairing the DNS and reebooting the server, nothing changed - the forward and the reverse lookup zones were gone.....

After a while I tried to make a new zone - but get the error: ...required application directory partition does not exist. Only Enterprise Administrators ...appropriate permissions...

Active Directory cannot communiqate with the global catalog.
Internatl ID failure: 33200c89

The DNS gets an critical error from AD

WIndows cannot determine the user or computer name. (Access denied)

MS DTC could not correctly process a DC Promotion/Demotion event. ...... PID: 408 No Callback.

There was also a message that there could be two computers with the same name - the server and another computer. But I cannot find any other computer with the same name as the server.

Please - help me.
If there is more information needed I will submit it quickly.
