    Hi there,
    I have 3 servers in my domain.
    - Windows server 2008 - DC.
    - Windows server 2008 - Secondary DC.
    - Windows server 2003 - File server.
    It all started with a "Netlogon" error in 2003 server which resulted in dropping of connection with the server 2003. A folder shared across the network from the server 2003 stops functioning randomly. There are numerous error messages logging in the event viewer so i cannot specify the exact error message. Below mentioning some of them.
    - Eventid : 4199,5719, 8003, 1111, 1004, 15005, 11164
    Steps Tried:Tried changing the network cables even changed the switch which the server was connected to. But still i am facing the same problem. It will work for 15 min when i repair the network connection. But disconnects right after.Updated the network adapter drivers.
    Please let me know if you need more details.Thanks,

    The fact that the issue is random points to a hardware issue. Have you tried replacing the NIC in the 2003 server?

    Also, are the 2008 DC's recent additions/upgrades or can we rule them out as a cause?

    I have tried changing the NIC and changed the cable also but no luck.

    Right now i am maintaining the connection with a .bat file scheduled to run every 1 minute which contains the following cmds.

    ipconfig /renew
    arp -d
    nbtstat -r
    nbtstat -rr
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerDNS

    I know that this is not a good practice.
