I have a Windows 2000 Domain Controller that has developed the problem listed below. I have tried everything to fix it. Can you help?
"Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. Return value (10106). "
These are typically name resolution issues. You should check that you have connectivity to a DNS server and that all of the Microsoft SRV records are in the DNS zone for your AD domain. Some of the SRV records start with _ldap.tcp.msdcs,[your domain]. There are many others. A quick diagnostic tool (NETDIAG.exe) can tell you more about what the problem is with the server. If this server is a DNS server you may wish to run the IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS on the system from the command prompt. Check the event logs afterward for any errors.
