Here's something we just ran into in our environment--

  One of our domain controllers was having hardware problems, and SEPM started sending out system alerts.  In SEPM I went into Admin/Servers/Server properties and removed the failing directory server (two others were listed).  This then caused an issue with logging into SEPM with my administrator account, because on the authentication tab on my account in SEPM the Directory Server was still the failed one.  As a result my administrator account locked out, and I had to use a generic account to get in.

  If SEPM could update any occurences of a retired directory server (or at least throw a warning pop-up on places to check) that would be helpful.
