no logon servers available to service the logon request

Last Modified: 2012-08-13

I have a Windows 2003 domain controller, and a 2008 secondary controller. Over the course of around 5 months around 8 users have reported getting the error "no logon servers available to service the logon request" when trying to login to the domain. My quick fix was to kill the connection and login cached, take it off the domain, and put it back on. Now I have ran across a issue of I took the machine off and on the domain, and still recieved the "no logon servers available to service the logon request" That particlar machine is used off site so I assume that is why it behaved in such a way. I ended up having to reinstall 7 on it to get it to even communicate with our domain again.

Main problem, I have a different local user getting that error and I am afraid to take it off the domain and add it back for fear of never getting it back on again without foolishly having to reinstall windows 7. All user machines in question were running windows 7. Any suggestions?
