Windows Server 2008 R2 Group Policy

I have a user account that is frequently being disconnected from the domain. I have identified an event in the security log on one of our database servers that sates the following;

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not authenticate to the Active Directory service on a domain controller. (LDAP Bind function call failed). Look in the details tab for error code and description.

This user is also experiencing disconnect from our exchange server. The network administrator is suggesting that the database server be rebooted however I'm thinking that if the server bind function is failing for one it would most likely fail or all.

Your thoughts and recommendations are greatly appreciated, please include additional troubleshoot suggestions as well.

As always, thank you experts.

What do you mean by - User account is frequently being disconnected from the domain ?
What is the event ID ?

Is it getting loked out frequently ? Is it domain ID or Local ID ?

Please share some more details on this.
