Problems with esxi hanging on commands after 1 domain controller goes down


I'm having issues with my esxi servers hanging on PowerCLI commands, as well running tasks in the WEB UI after one of my domain controllers (we will call this DC1) goes down.

DC2 is still up, but it still seems to try and use DC1. If I stop the lwsmd service, then everything works as it should, but then I can't use AD to log into the server, which isn't acceptable. 


I have noticed that when I try to ping the domain; we'll call it ""... it will try to resolve to the downed domain controller, but when I do a nslookup, DC2 responds and there are 2 returned IP addresses (DC1 and DC2).


Thanks for any help.
