    Hi,
    It takes too long durring "Applying your personal setting" after logon,Why?
    I have 2 DC win2k server that last week I moved all roles from master DC to
    additional DC from that time I have this problem!!
    Now I can't remove AD from old DC(because I want to format it) because of
    this error:"The DSA operation is unable to proceed because of a DNS lookup
    failure."
    How can I troubleshooting this problem?
    Thank you.

    Hi,

    There are few things you need to check:
    * First check DNS settings on the clients. Clients DNS needs to be
    configured to point to Active Directory DNS (probably your active directory
    server). If client's DNS point somewhere else this they won't be able to
    find your domain controllers and clients won't be able to logon. If you are
    in process or replacing active directory server, make sure that client's
    will know where to look for DNS on new server (make sure that they have DNS
    pointing to new AD server).
    * On AD server itself, make sure that DNS setting under TCP/IP points to
    itself or another active directory DNS server
    * Make sure your new AD server is also a global catalog (GC)
    * Make sure your new AD server is also a DNS server (e.g. configure your DNS
    zone to be Active Directory Integrated. This way DNS will replicate between
    domain controllers).
