Windows XP - Can't Apply GPOs and Event ID 5719
Posted on 2013-05-31
One domain, one DC -> Windows Server 2008 R2
DC is pointing to itself for primary DNS with no secondary DNS listed
Verified netlogon service is running on the DC
Client -> Windows XP SP3
The computer account was moved to a different OU this morning. The computer had been disconnected for about 15 days or so prior to today. Installed the GP Preferences client side extension for XP and then Group Policy Objects were applied to the OU that contains the computer.
I ran RSOP.msc on the client machine to see if the GPOs were applied. The GPOs were not being applied and the following is the error message that RSOP.msc gave:
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
Note: Due to the GP Core failure, none of the other Group Policy components processed their policy. Consequently, status information for the other components is not available.
I checked the event viewer system log and there were numerous 5719 entries:
No Domain Controller is available for domain <MyDomain> due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request. .
I ran IPCONFIG /all and verified that the machine was on the domain. I then ran IPCONFIG /flushdns and IPCONFIG /registerdns followed by a reboot. The GPOs still did not apply and the 5719 errors were still present.
I then reset the computer account: disconnected the machine from the domain, used Active Directory Users & Computers to reset the account, joined machine to domain, and restarted the machine. The GPOs still did not apply and the 5719 errors are still there.
I ran nslookup <MyDC> from the client and it looked up the DC with no errors.
The only other thing I can see on the client machine is an 8021 error:
The browser was unable to retrieve a list of servers from the browser <machine here>
I have another machine that was moved to a different OU and Group Policies were applied to that OU with no issues.
Any idea what is going on here?
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?
