    I got a call from a client, stating that they could not send e-mail or reach their own website, but could reach every other website needed. External people from their network could reach the site in question.

    From those descriptions, figured it was a DNS issue right off the bat. So when I got there, I connected to my home machine, verified sites were still up, and got IP addresses for the two sites, main and the website, mail.domain.com

    The IP for mail.domain.com worked, but the IP I would get from their main site wasn't working, a bit odd.

    Anyways, after further investigation, the server had an error in the Event Viewer (love that utility) as follows:

    The fix, found here, worked instantly. My question, since this server is 2000 with SP4, is how did it happen? I can't seem to find any root causes for it, haven't had this problem before as I have administered this server for the past year, and want to know if I can prevent it going forward. This client pays me hourly, and would like the same freedom :)

    Anyone seen this before, or know what causes it? TIA :)

    The performance counters were probably corrupt.

    That is what I figured, but I thought it was VERY strange that the only sites that were unreachable were sites that are related to the company.

    The sites are NOT hosted locally, and aren't even the same name as the domain. Kind of odd, I guess I'll just keep an eye on it going forward :(
