Can't find DC !!!

By Whatme? ·
I have a DC at site 3 which went offline for some reason. I rebooted it but it can't find or bind to a DC. NTFRS went offline since it ca't rteplicate with the other DCs. I get a 1000 usr error saying no DC to log onto. Active Directory can't be reached on this dc. I checked microsoft site but it said take server or workstation off domain and join again but this is a dc and if it can't replicate it sure won't depromote itself.
I can open my network places and see and open other workstations.

Any ideas?

I use terminal services now plus I also have Remote Admin already installed. So far I have done everything over the network including what you already sugested pointing me to remote boot the machine into safe mode for a restore.

Okay, sorry for being so late, but have u checked ur DNS? Troubleshooting it? You can check it by nslookup and then test it using a recursive check. Maybe there is the problem - a wrong IP, a firewall rule that changed and let u no more access the replication partners.

As stated above...DNS is the first thing, connectivity etc.
Finally rebuilt another DC and sent it to site
