Adding to my experience.

I experienced sluggish response times from the work stations. Slow file 
openings and slow access to various RSAT modules.

To resolve (this could be a challenge for a larger AD organization) I 
shutdown all the machines on the AD network in reverse order of importance.

Restarting the DC first, member server next and then each workstation. 
Normal, quick connection response speeds resumed.
