  • Pradeep,

    First of all, check your AD health, it seems your AD has some issues.

    As Syed already suggested, please post the result of dcdiag, which will help us to understand what exactly is going on.

    Please have a look at following discussion to know more about AD health check.

  • Hi,

    So you are able to login locally to the server? Check the network settings on the server and see what DNS server is specified. Seems strange that it's not possible to login when it's hosting the DNS role. Are you running a static IP? Is the DNS pointing to the loopback adress (127.0.0.1) or the IP (e.g 192.168.1.1)?

    Also see if you can ping any other resources on your network.

    1) Check if the dns is pointed correctly in the tcp ip settings.

    2) Disable all the firewall and Av

    3) Please post unedited Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:dcname >c:\dcdiag.txt

    Thanks

  • Hi Pradip, what was the reason of restarting your server?

    was there any changes made before restarting?

    is this a domain controller or a member server?

    if a member server, is the IP settings same as the DC?



    Every second counts..make use of it.

  • That is your domain controller, actually i'm also wondering why you are able to logon using local administrator account.

    Because once you promote a server as a DC you can no longer access the local users and groups.


    check out this link below:

    restart the server in DSRM mode and check if it will help

    If you boot a DC into directory services restore mode, or use the recovery console, you can access the SAM database which holds the local users/groups on a DC. But if you boot a DC in normale mode, you can't access the SAM database.

    Pradip, are you sure this is a domain controller and not a member server? A member server, unlike a DC, does have a SAM database which you can access when the server is booted in normal mode. Or are you booting into DS restore mode or recovery console?
