Where is my Domain

By jamb ·
I am running a W2K Ad Servers system consisting of 4 servers. I am running W2K Pro. I have loaded the Admin tools. When I go to use the tools I get a mesg that the server can not be located because it is not operational. I have checked and I am signed on as the administrator and the server is up. Any suggestions???

Apologies if this is a dumb question, but are you signed on as the domain administrator or just the machine admin?

When you are using the Active Directory administration tools, you may receive the following error message:

The server is not operational

This message may be displayed when you open a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, or while you are using a snap-in after a domain controller has been located.

CAUSE:
This error message may be caused by any of the following situations:

The network configuration of the client is incorrect. This includes the absence of addresses or incorrect addresses for DNS servers to locate and resolve domain controllers.

The configuration of the Winsock Proxy client is incorrect, preventing the correct resolution of available domain controllers and their addresses.

Network connectivity between the client and the domain controllers discovered by querying DNS is not available.

Communication over the network to the domain controller is functioning properly, but an invalid response was returned to the client.

The domain controller used as the data source while the MMC snap-in is open has become unavailable.
