    Hello

    I have a member server which I joined to the domain.
    installed the admin pack and try to get to ADUC.
    Sometimes I can get into and see everything fine but it
    then semms to time out and I get a error:

    windows cannot connect to the domain:
    the server is not operational

    Any ideas? Dns checks out to the best of my knowledge.

  2. Most likely a DNS issue. Can you check your DNS configuration and check,
    that your server/client are using your internal DNS server as DNS server
    (not ISP's). Also run dcdiag and netdiag to get extended status report.
