2008 SBS domain, running dcdiag to try to check for problems & am getting following message;

 Running enterprise tests on : mydomain.local
    Starting test: LocatorCheck
       Warning: DcGetDcName(GC_SERVER_REQUIRED) call failed, error 1355
       A Global Catalog Server could not be located - All GC's are down.
       Warning: DcGetDcName(TIME_SERVER) call failed, error 1355
       A Time Server could not be located.
       The server holding the PDC role is down.
       Warning: DcGetDcName(GOOD_TIME_SERVER_PREFERRED) call failed, error
       1355
       A Good Time Server could not be located.

Server that is supposedly down is not, as I am currently on it.
Where do I start?

Start with DNS.

Is the DNS server configured on the network card pointing to the SBS server itself? (it should be).
Is DNS running on the server? (it should be).
Are the relevant records all there?

I believe so. Although error messages present. Currently waiting for the damn thing to reboot....
A 15 min delay, sitting at "Applying computer settings" would be normal if the machine cannot contact the domain for some reason, which looks to be the case.

OK, get rid of the DNS server 192.168.20.225. Whatever it points to, (unless it is another DC in the same domain), does not know about this domain. Windows will switch to using it if the first one fails to respond, which probably happens during bootup, before the local DNS server has a chance to start.

What is at 192.168.20.225?

Commented:
It was my BDC, but was off (?), not out here much, as it's pretty low maintenance, but when it rains it pours
Starting that one up now...,

Commented:
It's back up - should I leave as is, or remove DNS from it?

Author

Commented:
And with that one up & running, things are behaving better, but not sure if they're quite right.
I've got about an hour ride home, so if you've got any other suggestions, I'll follow up from home.
Should be fine, as long as each DC is usually up and running.

DCDIAG looks better?
