As stated it would be recommend  that the entire environment has stable replication health. You can use the below commands to test this...
repadmin /replsum
repadmin /showrepl
repadmin /bridgeheads

dcdiag /v

Also checking to make sure that your DC is registered
netdom query dc

Either wait for the DC to be restored, or forcibly evict it.  By far my preference would be to wait until it is restored.
