  • Hi,

    Make sure that activie direcry server is running and accesible form the network computers, also make sure that in active directory sever server that all Active Directory and DNS service are running file. To veryify run Server Manager in AD Server, go to Roles->Active Directory Domain Services & Roles->DNS Server (system will show you event viewer logs and services status in the screen, make sure that services are running okay or else restart services or restart server)
