Windows 2000 server won't shut down or log off
Posted on 2004-11-18
I have a windows 2000 server. It is a single server in it's own domain in application mode with an activated licence server installed on it behind a Cisco PIX firewall. Suddenely I can't log into it vis TS I get the "The client could not establish a connection to the remote computer." Message.
I was however able to log in form another domain behind the same firewall using Dameware Mini Remote Control. Haveing done this I find that the DNS appeared not the be set up (it was). So I have inserterted the zone again. In the event log I the following event occures a number of times preceeding my intervention above:-
Event Type: Error
Event Source: NETLOGON
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5774
Registration of the DNS record '3b8bac17-2060-465b-8ca6-88167564ec74._msdcs.sslonline.co.uk. 600 IN CNAME SLREMOTE01.sslonline.co.uk.' failed with the following error:
DNS RR set that ought to exist, does not exist.
0000: 30 23 00 00 0#..
For me now the primary issue iis that I can't reboot the server or even log out of the session. Just nothing happens it doesn't hang of freeze it just fails to respond to either of these requests.
None of the answers in the exchange seem to help.
