Windows 2012 boot up Event ID 5719 Netlogon

This computer was not able to set up a secure session with a domain controller in domain <domain name> due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
This may lead to authentication problems. Make sure that this computer is connected to the network. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator.  

ADDITIONAL INFO
If this computer is a domain controller for the specified domain, it sets up the secure session to the primary domain controller emulator in the specified domain. Otherwise, this computer sets up the secure session to any domain controller in the specified domain.

called Microsoft and they made registry change and lost all networking so had to run restore to recover.  Going to rebuild it at this point.

Is the DNS server the IP of your domain controller?

bergquistcompanyAuthor Commented:
There is a static IP assigned and the DNS is configured to the IP of the domain controller in that domain.  It is happening on reboot, but I still think it shouldn't be :)

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

 
aindelicatoCommented:
You are correct, it shouldnt be.  This error usually indicates a dns resolution error when it can't find the domain controller.

Make sure in DNS that you have proper records for your DCs.  Is it only this one machine that is having this issue?

No I installed Windows 2012 on 3 new servers that will be replacing the 2003 DCs eventually but after installing the OS and rebooting they all get this error on reboot of the server.

Was this an older domain?  2012 servers can't see domains that aren't at least at a 2003 Domain Functional Level.

They are 2003 functional level and I have one with nothing in the static DNS and is DHCP as it's just a fresh 2012 install no promotions yet and that too gets error on reboot.

Seems like the Netlogon service is starting before the network is actually ready.

Resolution 1

To resolve this issue, install the most current driver for the Gigabit network adapter. Another approach may be to enable the "PortFast" option on the network switches.


Resolution 2

Set this registry entry to a value that is safely beyond the time it takes to retrieve a working IP address:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters
Value Name: ExpectedDialupDelay
Data Type: Reg_Dword
Data Value is in seconds (default = 0)
Data Range is between 0 and 600 seconds (10 minutes)


Also configure this setting (details in KB 244474):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\ Kerberos\Parameters
MaxPacketSize to 1

Resolution 3

Acconrding to KB 239924, disable media sense for TCP/IP:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
Add the following registry value:
Value Name: DisableDHCPMediaSense
Data Type: REG_DWORD -Boolean
Value Data: 1 (False, True)
Default: 0 (False)


Resolution 4

There is a known problem with DHCP client code in Windows 7. A hotfix is going to be released using this KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=2459530

Resolution 5

To resolve this issue, reduce the Netlogon negative cache period (the NegativeCachePeriod registry entry). When you do this, the Netlogon service does not behave as if the domain controllers are offline for 45 seconds. The event 5719 is still logged, but there is little negativ eside-effect from that. The setting enables domain controllers to connect earlier.

Ok tried 1, 2 & 3 yet same event on reboot.
Didn't do 4 as I'm on windows 2012.  
I don't have the NegativeCachePeriod key

Any other suggestions?

too much time and recovery it would be easier to reimage at this point and run.
