I am getting the following in my netlogon.log file:

NO_CLIENT_SITE: *servername* 169.254.59.135

This is being repeated every minute. The server in question is my DC and there is only one in this site.
I have 2 x NICs but one is disabled. This APIPA address does not appear anywhere on the server. It also does not appear in DNS. I do not have RRAS configured.
I need to stop the NO_CLIENT_SITE error being logged for this address.

Any idea's would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi,

This means that you have computers (169.254.59.135) logging on from IP subnets that is not defined in  Sites and Services. but as you know this is the APIPIA IP, so you dont need to do anything.

you can ignore this alert. please see the below article it will help to understand in better way.

I would prefer to eliminate the problem rather than just ignoring it. Any idea's on where my server would be getting the APIPA address from?
This is going to keep appearing in the event log which means my monitoring software will keep reporting on it.

Thanks.

Hi,

1. Go to CMD type "Ping -a 169.254.59.135" then you will get the name of machine and your can check that system.

2. Go to RUN type MSTSC and take the RDP of 169.254.59.135. you can get that machine.

Thanks Santosh but the log file already tells me what machine it is, and I have already troubleshooted the server in question.
I am looking for additional troubleshooting ideas.

The netsh commands will remove the IP configuration. Inappropriate for a remote DC located in another country.

I said in the question that I do not have RRAS. My iLo has a static address.

Hi,

i asked RSA not RRAS, if you have ilo then you can take the remote of server and run those command.

Pretty sure iLo doesn't have the advanced license.
Will double check.
