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?
