No Logon servers available

Hi, I have created an account for the user, however whenever we try to login to network machine it comes back with the error message no logon servers available.

I have created another account, which logs in totally fine?

Computer is on domain, and network cable is good too, because one account logs in properly and that account was never used to logon to that machine
Any ideas?

Login as an Admin user and delete the Userprofile under Users and C:\users\[Username]. Login again and all should be good.

To open Userprofiles run: "rundll32 sysdm.cpl,EditUserProfiles" (wihtout quote marks) in CMD prompt.
Can you ping the DC by name and IP?

Are you sure about this? because that profile has not logged on to the pc yet? do you think it will have profile under users?

Yes DC can be pinged using another test profile.

But this profile is unable to log on, as it says no logon servers available.
The old user logs on because the credentials are cached.
Flush the dns.
Set the dns to be static to the DC
Test again

No old user has logged on.

The profile which logs on is a brand new profile which was created just to test if it works on this machine, and it clearly does.

DNS flush already done, did not resolve the issue.

Is it just affecting this user.
Try another new user on the pc?
Usman FaridService Desk AnalystAuthor Commented:
Yes its just affected User A (New User), User B (New user) is able to logon

Tried another user C (which is not a new user but never has logged onto this machine before), logs in normally.

If a new user can login and only this user cant login is a user specific issue.
Can you post a screenshot of the error you get when this user try to login?

Is it on the same network as you domain controller?

try to put it out of the domain and add it back again See if this helps
Usman FaridService Desk AnalystAuthor Commented:
The Error is:

No logon servers are available to logon.

Computer is on the same network, tried taking domain off and putting it back on.

Issue not resolved.

Basically this new account has a group policy applied that this logs in automatically without putting the password in.

I am not sure if that is making a difference>?

Hi All

Thanks for the contribution

this issue is now resolved.

Basically that user account was on autologon in group policy, and apparently it was not giving it enough time to look for domain when it was logging in (auto). Change the settings in group policy to 120, which resolved the issue.

Thanks again.
