Ok, using Daniel Petri’s instructions, I was only able to get to step 15 but not able to proceed further. When clicking on Sites & Services, I continue to get the Active Directory Domain Services Error Box, the error says,”Naming information cannot be located because: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Contact your system administrator to verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.”
Also, i have with regards to the DNS, the online DC’s IP is set for the Primary DC and 127.0.0.1 as the Secondary.

I presume these are the only DCs in the environment? Yes, that is correct.
Are they in the same site or separate AD sites? Not at the same location, however they are connected via IPSEC Tunnels.
Is DNS installed on DC02? Yes – DNS is installed.
Have you also removed DC01 from the domain for Daniel Petri’s instructions on a metadata cleanup). Regarding Daniels Metadata Cleanup, step 4, am I supposed to be typing in the command for the failed server? DC01 of which is the failed server… I would type “connect to server DC01”, is that right?
Have you rebooted DC02? – First thing I did! No change.
