Active Directory Domain Services was unable to establish a connection with the global
We had a Blue Screen of Death on our server 2 days ago, so we decided to do boot from windows server 2008 r2 dvd and do a system restore from the previous night’s backup. Restore took around 6 hours, restore seemed ok until we checked the events and we got this error:
‘Active Directory Domain Services was unable to establish a connection with the global catalog.
1355 The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
Make sure a global catalog is available in the forest, and is reachable from this domain controller. You may use the nltest utility to diagnose this problem.’
Event id: 1126
Tried to resolve over the course of several hours, but just couldn’t resolve. So ran a restore over night to a previous months backup, in the hope that we could get the domain back up and running, then we could restore the previous days data backup. But unfortunately after the restore we got the same error.
Any help on this would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
