I have 2 Windows 2008 DC, one on VMware host and another one standalone. I recently found out that the standalone DC server does not recognize anything and any server. I am attaching a screen shot for more detail.
I synced then DCs, I also changed the IP setting of the malfunctioning Domain Controller (DC1) to Dynamic, with no luck. I put the IP back to Static, nothing changed for better. I also un-installed the Symantec Endpoint antivirus client from it, no good results.
I can ping the File Server from DC1 and also I can use remote desktop on DC1 to connect to File Server.
