I recently re setup a Windows 2003 SP2 domain controller last week because it crashed a week earlier.  As of last Friday it seemed to be working okay but when I came in this morning, none of the PCs on our network could get logged on.  To be accurate, they to get to the desktop but the logon script does not run.  From the server, I am not able to ping anything on the network even though the network card appears to be properly functioning.

We have been getting some error messages in the event logs which I have listed below.  I am not asking for a solution to every one of these messages but I provided them  in hope that they would provide a clue as tio why the server is not able to ping or communicate with any other device on the network.

Please, we are in desperate need of getthing this problem resolved.

The following is a list of error messages from the domain controller event viewer.

Event Source: MRxSmb  Event ID:8003
The master browser received an announcement from the computer /computer name/ that believes it is the master browser . . etc.  
I believe that I resolved this issue by turing off the computer browser service on the domain controller and leaving it our the ISA firewall server.

Event Source: Userenv  Event ID: 1030
Windows cannot query for a list of Group Policy objects.  Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine.

I could not find any events that had policy engine as the source.  I don't know how else I could check for it.

Event Source: LSASRV   Event ID: 40960
The Security system detected an authentication error for the server ldap/server name.domain name.  The failure code from the authentication protocol kerberous was "There are currently no logon servers available to service logon requested.

I am at a loss on how to resolve this issue.
