It seems to be an issue with the DNS not registered with the server.

Also the server has Red X on the network Icon,

I ran Dc Diag.exe and it did this...

C:\Users\htsuser4.SYED>dcdiag.exe

Directory Server Diagnosis

Performing initial setup:
   Trying to find home server...
   Home Server = SERVER
   * Identified AD Forest.
   Done gathering initial info.

Doing initial required tests

   Testing server: Default-First-Site-Name\SERVER
      Starting test: Connectivity
         The host f8e87b26-40a5-44db-acd2-349596073ec2._msdcs.syed.local could
         not be resolved to an IP address. Check the DNS server, DHCP, server
         name, etc.
         Got error while checking LDAP and RPC connectivity. Please check your
         firewall settings.
         ......................... SERVER failed test Connectivity

Doing primary tests

   Testing server: Default-First-Site-Name\SERVER
      Skipping all tests, because server SERVER is not responding to directory
      service requests.
