AD error

Hello Expert,

Once in 2 months I am getting an error message when I  try to open Active Directory users and computers. The message is as follows:-
“Naming information cannot be located for the following reason: The server is not operational”
I think is an error related to DNS, I am also attaching the screenshot of the error. Please help as always you do.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
