Windows 2003 AD

I have a small network in the office and we recently moved DHCP services to the router and shutdown a secondary AD server. We had 3 domain controllers and now we have 2.

However, I am finding a lot of systems are getting this issue now:

This computer was not able to setup a secure session with a domain controller in domain MYDOMAIN due to the following:
There are currently no login servers available to service the login request.

I have limited knowledge of AD so looking for some steps to try. I can follow directions.

verify which server holds the FSMO roles.

Just type this in a command prompt:

NetDOM /query FSMO

This will display the current primary DC.
We will continue after you verify this.

Can you verify the time in in sync? Is there a reason why you moved DHCP to the router and not keep it on server? I have seen errors like this due to issues with time sync and DHCP residing on Cisco devices running DHCP.
Time is correct on the 1st DC. The 2nd it was behind an hour.

The server that use to run DHCP was running out of storage. It is a old Dell server so we moved DHCP to a hardware solution instead of a software.
DHCP is being handled by our PepLink 305 load balancer.

Thanks, I will see what the secondary DC is using for NTP. I will know within 24 hours if this resolves the issue.

DNS was also part of the issue.
