Error messages when connecting in win 2000 Pro or 2003

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

The following is a list of error messages that may arise when trying to connect either a win2000 Pro or 2003 server to other computers in a network.

From a computer running Windows NT server 4.0 the error message received states:  

Error = There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

From a pc running windows 98 the error message states:

Error 2215: server name is not accessible. The logon server cannot be found.

The Win2000 Pro or 2003 server is logged on to the domain yet the event viewer shows that the computer fails to contact the domain controller. It fails to connect to all that is on the network. The report on Net diag utility shows the computer to be logged on to the PC through cached credentials. Can you please help me figure it out why this is happening?

Install the Win2k domain controller as PDC Emulator to support NT  server 4.0 networks. Because PDC Emulator provides NTLM authentication service to NT server 4.0 networks.

Hello Cyril Wood,

The first thing that I would suggest that you do is restarting the machine, because a simple restart of the machine could fix the problem that you are having.

Otherwise, you may also try the following and see if it will help solve the issue:

  • Log on to the windows version that you are using with the local clients account, and make sure that the computer can communicate with the server without having any problems, for instance problems with using the ping command, and thereafter you will be required to disjoin and then later rejoin the computer to the domain that are on so as to check the issue.
  • Another thing that I suggest you try is removing all the security software which include the firewall, the antivirus program, the antispyware if you are using one on the windows program and then check if your problem is solved.

Otherwise, I will refer you to the following link and see if you can get anything that might of help to you.
