This computer is now hosting the specified directory.................

Hi,

The primary DC on one of my client is behaving peculiar. For instance, when I RDP to it inside the LAN, within space of 5 mins, the server will lock itself, nobody can logon to it.

When it locked it self, you can still ping the server with response but the only way to logon is to reboot it.

After the reboot, the below logged report appeared.

This computer is now hosting the specified directory instance, but Active Directory Web Services could not service it. Active Directory Web Services will retry this operation periodically.
 
 Directory instance: NTDS
 Directory instance LDAP port: 389
 Directory instance SSL port: 636


Then, after the above, the below log shows up...about 5 mins gapped between the two logs when they were generated.


Active Directory Web Services is now servicing the specified directory instance.
 
 Directory instance: NTDS
 Directory instance LDAP port: 389
 Directory instance SSL port: 636



There is no server authentication certificate installed in this DC...after checking.
But, this is a new DC whereby all its FMSO roles where transferred from the OLD DC, which was successfully decommissioned.

My concern is when i do RDP to the DC, after few minutes the server lock itself up...my feeling is something to do with the missing server authentication certification for authentication?

Appreciate any input.
