  • [newbie] There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request

    Server running as a virtual machine (bridged network), which is also a domain controller is showing this error when trying to logon using the domain admin, however, it logons on using the local administrator.

    Win Server 2008

    Any ideas?

    Load up Services.msc and check that the Netlogon (lsass.exe) service is running. If not there there is a problem with the DC.

    a) Check that the Sysvol and Netlogon folders are shared using Net View command.
    b) Make sure DNS service is running ok.
    c) Check Directory Services, DNS and FRS event logs.

      Does the DC hold any FSMO roles? Are there any more DCs in the domain>

        No, there are no other DCs in the domain. Not sure about FSMO, however, it is the default installation.

          What DNS server is the DC pointing to? Does it have the SRV records for the DC? You could run a DCDIAG.

            Netlogon is running. Checked from the GUI

            a) Check that the Sysvol and Netlogon folders are shared using Net View command.
            C:\Users\Administrator.SERV01>net view
            System error 6118 has occurred.

            Checked that Windows Firewall is off; is this the same as ICF?
            Machine is part of a domain, hence, I assumed that a workgroup is not relevant in this case.
            Related links: http://www.chicagotech.net/systemerr...ly%20available

            The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available
            b) Make sure DNS service is running ok.
            When I try to start the DNS Service I am getting Error 1068, so it seems DNS has some problem. Any idea what these dependencies are?

            c) Check Directory Services, DNS and FRS event logs.
            A couple of errors with Sharepoint.


            I think I'll scrap the vm and start over, luckily it's a test

              The same server is set to be the DNS server (from NIC).

              I don't think there are any SRV records because I haven't updated any, does the following tell you anything?

              C:\Users\Administrator.SERV01>dcdiag

              Directory Server Diagnosis

              Performing initial setup:
              Trying to find home server...
              ***Error: serv01 is not a Directory Server. Must specify /s:<Directory
              Server> or /n:<Naming Context> or nothing to use the local machine.
              ERROR: Could not find home server.

                DNS needs SRV records for your AD services. If you check that your adapter's DNS suffic is set right and then restart the 'netlogon' service on the DC, it may register them. Are there folders called MSDSC etc? You could uninstall DNS and then reinstall and then restart the 'netlogon' service and see if the SRV records then appear.
