Having issue getting dc up are restoring in lab

I have to restore a 2008 DC in a lab environment.

I have gotten the DC restore and I'm working on getting AD services up and running. But every time I try to run ADUC or sites and services I get and error that the domain cannot be contacted.

I believe I have DNs up and running, I have seized all the roles.

Where else should I look to get the AD services working?

If you had multiple DC's in your production environment and you took 1 DC and put it in your Lab, you need to perform the following steps...

- Point DNS to itself (127.0.0.1)
- Seize Roles
- Perform Metadata cleanup
- Open DNS Manager, Cleanup all of the SRV records for other DC's
- Open Sites and Services and cleanup/delete old computer objects
- Reboot the DC
