Domain controller fails - Causing a windows service to stop?

Last Modified: 2016-03-10
Hello all,

We have created a windows service that a client runs on a server, using a domain account. This is necessary for database access.

Recently, the domain controller on the server failed, also, the service stopped.

I would like to know if this is simply a coincidence, or if the domain controller failing is causing the service to stop because of the account being used to run it.
