NETLOGON ERROR Causing w32time errors Cannot find domain which results in the computer randomly freezing

Everytime i reboot I get the following errors listed below.  The machine also freezes everyday at the same time I get these errors.   This is a Dell Vostro 220s with winxp sp3 on a server 2003 domain. Machine passes all hardware diagnostics with flying colors including burn in test of all components.


No Domain Controller is available for domain XXXXXX 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.

The time provider NtpClient is configured to acquire time from one or more time sources, however none of the sources are currently accessible.  No attempt to contact a source will be made for 15 minutes. NtpClient has no source of accurate time.

Again, I agree.

Also, does DHCP have a server listed in Scope options that no longer exists as a DNS server??

Seems like you are losing network communication during this time. Have you tried pinging the domain controller when this is happening?

What the error states is that you can't connect to the domain controller either because of DNS or connection.

Make sure the client is only pointing to the DC for DNS there shouldn't be any external DNS servers in the TCP\IP properties.

I would remove station from domain, delete computer account from AD, then re-add station back to the domain

Are you still having issues?

Are you sure you are getting internal DNS servers could have a rouge DHCP server on network like a router
