Perform actions and recheck the event logs and post back.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

ok I have this one

Event ID 5719

This computer was not able to set up a secure session with a domain controller in domain ASPIREMEDICAL due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
This may lead to authentication problems. Make sure that this computer is connected to the network. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator.  

ADDITIONAL INFO
If this computer is a domain controller for the specified domain, it sets up the secure session to the primary domain controller emulator in the specified domain. Otherwise, this computer sets up the secure session to any domain controller in the specified domain.


And this 1129

The processing of Group Policy failed because of lack of network connectivity to a domain controller. This may be a transient condition. A success message would be generated once the machine gets connected to the domain controller and Group Policy has succesfully processed. If you do not see a success message for several hours, then contact your administrator.

will try hot fix now

Ok I have unjoined from the domain and I am now trying to add the machine back onto the domain and getting the following message

Note: This information is intended for a network administrator.  If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt.

DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain "ASPIREMEDICAL.local":

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.ASPIREMEDICAL.local

The following domain controllers were identified by the query:
aspireserver.aspiremedical.local


However no domain controllers could be contacted.

Common causes of this error include:

- Host (A) or (AAAA) records that map the names of the domain controllers to their IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.

- Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.

I received a message like that, try to reset the computer account or delete the account and re-add it, in active directory.

Plus try to do this from an elevated account

Start
Type cmd
right-click runas administrator
type ipconfig /flushdns
type ipconfig /registerdns

Then post back
