Is this computer configured to use itself as its DNS server?

comment Name Resolution failure on the current domain controller
Tell us about how your DNS client settings are configured. Tell us about your DNS server (is it running on this Domain Controller computer, what Forward Lookup Zones do have configured).

Can you post your command lines (sanitized, if necessary)?

comment Distribute a network with sub networks properly
Creating VLANs based on floors of a buidling is a wrongheaded reason for creating VLANs. You create VLANs to segment varying security concerns, and to limit flooding of broadcast and frames with unknown destinations.

comment Main DC is no longer NTP or hold FSMOs
The resulting SRV record returned by that nslookup should be the same regardless of which DNS server you run it against. That's the query to located the PDC Emulator FSMO role-holder. If you're seeing different results for that nslookup run against different DNS servers then you've got an Active Directory replication problem (because, likely, you're using Active Directory-integrated DNS zones).

@JamesO'Keeffe - You may well have been getting broadcast NetBIOS name resolution when you tried those commands.

comment Main DC is no longer NTP or hold FSMOs
Were the resulting VMs from the P2V run in an isolated environment, or were they able to communicate to the existing network? (I feel like, if it were a disaster recovery exercise, they would be run in an isolated environment. That would be the norm, at least.)

comment Main DC is no longer NTP or hold FSMOs
It still sounds like a DNS problem to me. What does the output for nslookup -type=SRV _ldap._tcp.pdc._msdcs.swaco.org look like on the AOBVADC001 machine? What DNS servers are specified on that machine?

@AndrewDomaszek - Thanks for that! I was trying to think of Eucalyptus' name but couldn't come up with it.

comment Should I worry about an Amazon AWS doomsday scenario?
@ChrisInCambo - It depends. If Amazon ended up with some kind injunction preventing your access to the service it probably wouldn't matter, from a legal perspective, if you were using a different account w/ different billing. That would be a Talk to a Lawyer(tm) moment, for sure. (I tend to think about worst-case scenarios and often rely on others to reign me back in and temper my visions of woe.)

comment Cant RDP if VPN IPv4 uses default gateway on remote network flag
This still makes no sense. Don't show us a screenshot of what appears to be something from your RRAS server. Show us the output of route print | clip from the client computer when it is connected to the VPN.

comment Cant RDP if VPN IPv4 uses default gateway on remote network flag
Your understanding / usage of the "Use default gateway on remote network" box is confusing me. Update your question with the IP address of a server that you can't reach and the exact state that the checkbox is in when you can't reach it. The output of route print when you can't reach that server would help, too.

comment Create an MBR on secondary plex
@ewwhite - He's close to that, except that he doesn't have the machine booting off the hard disk drive again. That question doesn't go into actually getting the Windows bootloader whipped back into shape.
