We have a local domain that consisting of 2 NT4 domain controllers (PDC/BDC), and our client PC's and member servers belong to this domain.  User accounts are in a separate domain, but there are a few admin accounts in the resource domain that are used occasionally.  On client PC's and member servers, I often see the error below stating there are no domain controllers available for the resource domain.  I do not believe I have seen this on either the PDC/BDC, but have seen it on both member servers and client PCs.  I'm wondering what might be causing this and how I might resolve it?  Here is the error from one of the member servers:

Netlogon Event ID 5719:
No Windows NT Domain Controller is available for domain <domain_name>.

To work around this behavior, enable the spanning tree 'portfast' setting on the switch. For information about the proper use of the spanning tree 'portfast' setting, consult the documentation provided with the switch.

That'S 1 possibility..

This would also be logical:

The same error can occur if the workstation and stand-alone server computer accounts are mistakenly treated as LanMan backup domain controllers (BDC) by the primary domain controller (PDC)

Error: "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request" - This error also appears when you have multiple domains and the computers you have configured are not on a network where their computer accounts reside e.g. they must communicate through a firewall for authentication. Try entering static entries in the LMHosts file for the authentication PDC/BDC and if this does not help, additionally add Wins and DNS IP addresses in "Local Area Connection" TCP/IP settings.

Hi I didn't go through what Yan west wrote. Sorry. I have the some information and hope it works. This behavior can occur when your server is connected to a switch that has the spanning tree portfast setting disabled. This information is from KB247922. And for more information please go to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;247922

Since this will require me to engage other people because I don't have access to the switches, I'll close this for now.  Hopefully this has pointed me in the right direction, but I won't know until later and don't want to keep this open for a long time.  Thanks.
