Windows AD/network problem

Hi,

I have a problem with Windows server 2012 based on a vmware Esxi virtualization platform. The server encounters a problem with a network card and after that it loses connection with AD and mail services and also my DFS-s replication go-s down. If I disable the network card and re-enable it, some features come back online, although not everything.

Every time the problem occours, I get a error 7031 in my event viewer.

The Microsoft Exchange RPC Client Access service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 1 time(s).  The following corrective action will be taken in 5000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

Any ideas?
