Is the server being rebooted or shut down for maintenance or something once a week? If the server itself is shut down for any reason, the DNS server portion will be shut down as well. You would then see that message in the event viewer.

Wow - okay - not sure that has anything to do with the DNS issue.

1st question: is your internet connection actually shutting down, or can users not get to the internet because the DNS server shut down?
- You know, I'm sure, that users will believe the internet connection has shut down because they can't get to a domain, such as google.com, for example. In reality, if the DNS server is down, the internet connection may be present and just fine - the user would have to enter the IP address of the site instead of the domain name to get there.

2nd, regarding your VSS error message, the following post suggests that this is a known issue with Windows 2008 r2. It is caused by a permissions change related to the DHCP role. It likely has nothing to do with your DNS issue.

I agree with this, I am never on site when it happens and limited to trying to troubleshoot after the fact without real conditions.
