You should at least of two domain controllers in your active directory environment. If you have two and one starts to act up.
1. de-promo the domain controller
2. Remove it from the domain.
3. Clean up the metadata in AD
4. Re-install the operating system
5. add it to the domain
6. Promote it to a domain controller

If that server is your only domain controller, you need to add a temporary domain controller then do the steps above. This <a href=”http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736378.aspx”>link</a> will step you through cleaning up the metadata.

    I would expect you must have some errors in the event logs which should shed some light. If so, please post them. Otherwise, really this is way too broad an issue to give an answer for. I would need to know the answer to about 50 questions and you have given nothing here to go on so far. When did this start? Is the problem predictable and repetitive? Have you installed any service packs? Atthe very least take a tour through the event logs and see what is going on there.
