Screwed up our company domain???

By FrogSnot ·
Long story short. We have a domain at work, set up on a Server 2008 machine and I deleted the server's network settings (The IP4 properties, the assigned IP address, the subnet mask, default gateway and DNS.) I wrote all this information down before deleting it, and I put it all back after I was through doing what I was doing. Now all the workstations are very slow to boot up and logon and people connecting remotely can no longer connect. I really have no experience with Server 2008 and I had no idea I was going to screw things up so bad by removing those settings. I thought after I put those settings back everything would go back to normal. WRONG!!! Could use some help before everyone wants to kill me Monday morning. Please help!

Did you reboot after restoring the network settings?

On a server, sounding like this may be the only server on the Domain, there are so many services that depend on the static IP addy.

At a minimum I would expect, if you don't reboot the server, restarts of the DNS, DHCP, and maybe even restart the SERVER service and let it restart all dependent services.
