    The Directory Service is currently unavailable

    I just upgraded the hadrware on a Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller. I then ran through the repair install just like explained in the ms kb article and have also applied all the updates and SP1 is also installed. I have now started to get issue with adding printers on the workstations. When I go through the add printer wizard and select Find printer in the directory, then I am getting this error message "The Directory Service is currently unavailable." Any ideas?

    Incase you have upgraded it, then it should just work fine. The problem might be somewhere else. Lets start by providing an unedited ipconfig /all from this machine and also can you tell us the AD DNS name as well.
