Server 2008 R2 loses domain connectivity after group policy starts to fail


  • My organization has a Windows 2008 R2 Standard server that loses connection to our domain ever 6-8 weeks; this has been going on for a year now and it is stumping us. About 6-8 hours before the computer loses connection to the domain we start seeing GPO errors, first Event ID 1030, then every few minutes event ID 1055.

    Our domain: Windows 2008R2 functional level. We have 4 DCs in 2 datacenters, they are connected via a 10 Gbps link. They are fully patched, and no other server that we no of has this issue.

    The server in question is Windows 2008 R2 Standard 64 bit running on VMWare. It has a single virtual adapter with a manual IP configuration: One DC from each datacenter are its DNS servers. It is fully patched.

    I can't find any kerberos errors around either the time it stops processing GPO or around the time it actually gives the RPC Connection error that alerts us to the domain connection failing.

    I'll be happy to post any logs/events people are curious about.
