  • it just means that of all the DC's in that site more than 60% isn't healthy. So you need to look at the individual dc's and find out what the problem is.

  • What are the items Iam supposed to look for - as of the event viewer on AD and DNS server - I dont see any error events....

    Can you pl suggest any specific AD commands I need to run to dig further ?

  • you should be able to drill down in the AD site in scom and the DC's in the site should be visible. Open their health explorer to see what is wrong.
