Event ID 4007 During normal production

    Hi,

    Recently my DNS Service on one of my Domain Controllers crashed. It began
    by producing ID 4007 3 times, producing a single ID 708, and finally an ID
    140 complaining that DNS could not initialize the RPC Service.

    I've found that the ID 4007s are indicative of a loss of communicaitons
    between DNS and AD, usually occuring during initial start up of a domain
    controller. In our situation, however, these events occured during normal
    production hours.

    The error occured after I had left the office for the day, and when I
    returned in the morning and noticed the errors in my Event logs, I attempted
    to start the now-crashed DNS Service. It restarted with no problems, and the
    problem has not reoccured since.

    What could cause these event ID 4007s during normal production? Is there a
    deeper cause to examine, or could it just be a problem with the DNS Service?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Forgot to mention I am running Windows Server 2003 SP1 in full Windows
    Server 2003 mode.

    Check this out:

    and may want to take a look at this, but if you already have SP1, that
    should have taken care of it:

    If what the above article implies it being a possible replication issue, how
    many DCs do you have?
