DCdiag was run on DC2, isn´t it?
I think, or DC2 has network issues or DC has no network or all DC functions are not working. You have lot of error replicating from DC to DC2. Test on DC this:

All services are running (focus on DNS)
Netlogon and sysvol are shared

Try pinging DC from DC2 and check connectivity. Check can access netlogon and sysvol from DC2 to DC.

DC is your global catalog. I think you must focus on this machine.
Have you try restarting this DC? on event log appears some error?

Users were not able to log on on domain controller, we have reinstalled new DC with different name & migrate all domain client profile.
