Is there a firewall between the Windows server 2008 r2 and the Domain Controller?  Some ports may be blocked and not allowing authentication.

I never experienced this myself.  But not being able to authenticate usually mean there is some blocking or the server is not able to reach the DC.

Does the server have multiple network connection?  Can it ping the DC?

HI Anthony,
The issue was because the NTP server settings were not setup correctly?
Thank you for your response though
