- Make sure that the DNS IP address is properly configured in your network configuration.
- Check that the FQDN of the machine matches the DNS zone that was created for the AD. You could have a mismatch between the AD and the machine FQDN (usually this only happens when the system is an upgrade from Windows NT 4.0).
- Run the NETDIAG.exe from the SUPPORT TOOLS on the Windows 2000 CD. THis will give you an overall picture of the network configuration and health.
That should get you enough information to start resolving the problem.
