Customer is running SBS 2000. Periodically, the message "dns server unable to
open active directory" is logged in the DNS Server Event Viewer. When this
happens, the server appears to be locked up and no users can log in. If I
reboot the server, the problem then appears to be resolved. I've run dcdiag
and it reports no problems with AD. However, the problem keeps recurring. Any
suggestions as to where to look next?
