Netlogon errors after adding new domain controllers
Posted on 2009-04-13
Last week I added 2 new domain controllers, both Server 2008, to a network that had a single 2003 domain controller. Both new 2008 servers are global catalog servers. The 2003 one is still a domain controller but no longer a GC. A few days ago I started noticing errors on the client machines in the System log.
Changing machine account password for account xp-computer$ failed with the following error:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
No Domain Controller is available for domain DOMAIN due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request. .
Make sure that the computer is connected to the network and try again. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator.
I ran DCDIAG on both of the new domain controllers and it only reported errors from the System log for printers from an RDP session and another xpcomputer$ machine account that failed to authenticate.
On one of the XP client machines I disjoined it and rejoined it to the domain and it works fine but I can't do that with all of them.
Thanks for the help!
