BDC Stops Working after MB Replacement

Specs: Windows Server 2003
We have a BDC that had some issues, and we had HP replace the motherboard. Everything else stayed the same. Immediately after this replacement, the server began getting constant errors in the event logs for NTFRS, DNS, and MSDTC (Event #13508, 4515, and 4112, among others). I can ping the server just fine, but from ADUC, I cannot connect to it, and our remote users (on a trusted domain) can no longer authenticate to our domain. Any ideas why replacing the motherboard would cause these things to stop working? Thank you!

no such thing as a bdc in windows 2003
was it the exact same mainboard as before?

Ok, not a BDC, but an additional DC.
The motherboard should be exactly the same, as we had an HP technician replace it.

Then it seems likely to me the DC has either Operating System or Software issues.

You don't state whether or not you tried to track down the error messages. Have you?

That's where I always start troubleshooting.

Perhaps the OS was corrupted when the mainboard fried. A restore from backup previous to the mainboard failure would be in order as well as a AD restore[system state]
