win server 2003 dns and ad errors ???Locked
the platform :
1- domain name is : rain.com
2- a server named RON.rain.com
3- OS : windows server 2003 SP1.
4- RON = Root, DNS,DC,AD.
the problem :
for some reason the server was restated, after log on (which took a bit more time than usual) :
1- oped the DNS snap in it shows a red cross, its not started,
2- nslookup = Default Server: Unknown
3- trying to restart the dns = failed
so tried the AD snap in, double click on it it shows the following error message :
naming information cannot be located because the specified domain does not exists or cannot be contacted,
i dont know what cause the problem
checked the event viewer found the following errors:
source : DNS
event ID : 4000
The DNS server was unable to open Active Directory. This DNS server is configured to obtain and use information from the directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and reload the zone. The event data is the error code.
source : userenv
event id : 1053
windows cannot determine the server or computer name, the system detected
a possible to compromise the security, please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you.
source : net logon
event id : 5781
Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated
with DNS domain ‘rain.com’ failed. These records are used by other
computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified
domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the
specified domain is an application partition).
any ideas plz
