Hello,
When i run nslookup i get this
********************************************************
C:\Program Files\Support Tools>nslookup
*** Can't find server name for address 10.30.0.9: Non-existent domain
Default Server: s2.masd.org
Address: 10.30.0.8
********************************************************
10.30.0.9 is my PDC. When i started here, the second DC's address was used
in the IP properties of the clients. So i got rid of the root in the PDC
and made it work the way it should. All the clients now point to
thePDC(10.30.0.9) and things work fine, almost. At a certain time of day
the Internet goes down. i have to disable and enable the connections to get
it back up. i included a dcdiag a FRSdiag. Thanks again for your past help
and hopfully future.

Sounds like a couple things. I would first check the clients with an
ipconfig /all to insure that only the internal DNS shows up. If an external
DNS is in there, I would change it if a static entry and/or if uysing DHCP,
check your DHCP Option 006 to insure ONLY the internal DNS shows up. This is
evident by the mere fact you have to disable/enable the connections. Hope
you're not using your router as a DHCP server.

Same with the DC. FRS errors, and other numerous errors will show up if
still referencing your ISP's or router as a DNS server on the DCs.

Setup a forwarder on your internal DNS to your ISP's DNS. If not sure how,
see this article:
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=300202

FYI: There is no such thing as a PDC in AD. Legacy terminology that pertains
to NT4 only. There are replica DCs, so you have DC1, DC2, etc. There is a
PDC Emulator FSMO Role that one of the DCs performs to "act" as a PDC for
backware level clients, time synch, password changes, etc, but it is NOT a
PDC, but rather a DC that just happens to hold that role.

The nslookup message (note: this is NOT an error) just says that you do not
have a reverse zone. If you do, there is not PTR entry for the DNS server's
IP address pointing to it;s name. Nslookup upon intialization is just doing
you a "favor" by looking up in your reverse zone for the name of the server.
That;'s it. So just create a reverse zone and make sure the DNS server has a
PTR entry in it to eliminate that "message", otherwise nslookup will still
function.

Also enable the SMTP service on this machine. AD uses it in certain
circumstances (depending on your Sites links configuration). That is the one
error that I see too.

Please define "goes down". What is the "certain time of day" ?

Have you tested your ICMP/IP connectivity to the rest of
Internet during this period ?
