sometimes any of these measures seem to suddenly work and then not.

any pointers?


How are you synchronizing sysvol?
rsync as prescribed by the wiki.

Actually we might have found the problem. There were some stale dns records, especially A records that resolve the domain itself, pointing to a non-existent DC. also a whole slew of other records that existed for two of the dc's but not the third we had recently installed. so a major dns edit may have fixed the issue. I will update this if the problem is completely gone.
