Admittedly, I am way over my head here, but I hope someone will recognize this issue and be able to guide me.
I am running Active Directory on a Windows 2003 server. I was adding a user to Active Directory and the AD stopped responding. When I reopened AD in the Management Console I received a message that Naming information cannot be located because: the specified domain either does not exist or cannot be contacted. (see file 1 attached)
I tried to reconnect AD to my domain (on the same server) and got a message that it could not connect to the pre-Windows 2000 domain.
I then went to Active Directory Domains and Trusts in the Management Console and received an error message The configuration information describing the enterprise is not available. The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted (see file 2 attached)
Users are still able to log on to the domain so I am very reluctant to take any further steps without guidance.
