    I have one domain controller. About a month ago we had some problem with the File Replication Server. Opened a ticket with Microsoft and they changed the Blurflag value. The problem was resolved and people could now login to the domain.Now I
    am having a problem on the network. On two different member servers.. there are Cannot access GPT.INI errors. The Domain controller locks up when these errors occur. I can access the Sysvol share from other computers on the domain.
    The permissions on the GPT.INI are Domain\Administrators = Full Control Authenticated Users = Read/Execute and Read and System = Full Control. I have rebooted multiple times. The Sysvol\Domain.local folder is empty except
    for a folder called Do not remove NTFRS The service TCP/IP Netbois helper is set to automatic and login account is Nt Authority system... And I don't know the password for this. I also don't have a good backup of a working Group
    Policy system state. I read about doing a PurgeMUPCache , but I don't know what the results will be.

    DB:3.10:Event Id 1058 And 1030... Group Policy Problems 1c

    Can you check if the secure channel between the client machines and the server is fine:
    To verify secure channel perform these steps :
    1. from the problem machine try to access \\domainController
    If you are able to see the shares the secure channel is working fine.
    FYI: Changing the burflag value performs and authoritative restore of the sysvol folder. If you set the burflag value to d2 the server will start advertising that it has a bad sysvol copy and will fetch the good sysvol copy from the closest Domain
    Controller. If you set the value to D4, the server advertises itself as the only good copy of sysvol folder. In case of setting the burflag value to D4 it is mandatory that you change the burflag on other DC's as D2 so that they can fetch the changes from
    good copy.

    DB:3.07:Any Drawbacks To Using Server 2008-R2 Rodcs? 88


    We are implementing Server 2008-R2 domain controllers at our main office and our 2 branch offices. The branch offices each have a fairly small 512kbs data line to the main office (No, we cannot
    increase this). This data line is already being used for our main application data. The domain servers are being installed to perform the following functions: Provide Domain login, act as DNS servers, act as syslog servers, run WSUS for Microsoft updates,
    and run Symantec SEP 12. The branch offices have 10 users each. We are planning to setup the branch office domain servers as RODC's (Read Only Domain Controller) to minimize the traffice accross the data line to the main office.
    With the services we are going to be running on these (see list above), does anyone see any reason why we should NOT be setting the branch servers up as RODC's as opposed to Additional Domain Controllers?

    DB:3.07:Any Drawbacks To Using Server 2008-R2 Rodcs? 88

    Hi there -
    Using RODCs in Branch offices is a recommended configuration and will reduce WAN bandwidth utilization.
    If you have file servers or Web servers in your main office that clients in branch offices will be accessing, you can also reduce WAN bandwidth use with BranchCache.

    BranchCache has two modes available - with hosted cache mode, you store the cached content on a hosted cache server. (With your branch office design, since you have a server in place, you can use that server as the hosted cache server.) With distributed
    cache mode, clients running Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate cache content and share it with other clients in the branch.
    For information about BranchCache, see BranchCache for Windows Server 2008 R2, at
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd996634(WS.10).aspx.

    DB:3.03:Domain Controller Login Restrcition 71

    If you want to prevent users from one building from logging on to computers in the other building, I would suggest creating security groups for denying logon access to the workstations. But I'd also wonder what problem it is that you are trying to solve.
    You could keep those people out of the other building by changing the locks and not giving them the new keys.
    If you just want to restrict users from authenticating against the DC in the other building, I'd suggest completely separate networks. But I'd also wonder what your reason is for wanting to throw away the enhanced availability that comes from being able
    to logon against different domain controllers.

    DB:3.01:Windows 2008 Domain Controller Does Not Authenticate 1m


    Hello,
    I have recently added a new Domain Controller to my environment. Having one Windows 2003 Server R2 Domain Controller already in place, I have successfully updated the schema on the W2K3 DC (Adprep, Forest Prep, Domain Prep, GP Prep, and RODC Prep).
    Schema version is 47 for Windows Server 2008 Standard R2. Forest/Domain Functional levels are Windows 2003 Server for both too.

    I promoted the W2K8 server to a Domain Controller. Here is the problem. I have a small environment, so I was able to UNPLUG the W2K3 Domain controller to see if authentication would occur on the new W2K8 DC server. It doesn't. In
    fact, when I reboot the new DC with the previous DC unplugged, it doesn't come back up as a real Domain Controller. I cannot open Active Directory. The User Profile Service Starts at logon, and the user that is loaded is not a user in Active Directory.
    No logon scripts appear. Even the network connection is severed for awhile. What is going on??? Is this a RODC thing. I don't want a Read Only DC.

    I want to eventually decommission the W2K3 Domain Controller, so having a fully functional is a must! Please assist. Everything seems to work when I have the W2K3 DC plugged back in.

    DB:3.01:Windows 2008 Domain Controller Does Not Authenticate 1m

    Hello,
    good to hear that you found your solution.
    So, is Exchange Server and DHCP allowed? I'd like to keep RAS if possible too. Just sayin.
    Exchange on DCs is also NOT recommended, even not from Microsoft, ONLY SBS version is especially designed for it.
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997407(v=exchg.80).aspx
    DHCP if possible should run on domain member servers either, security is the reason, details in
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787034(WS.10).aspx about the integration within DNS and updates.
    And again RRAS on a DC is also bad design, see the mentioned article.
    So rethink the design and make your life easier especially about security, performance and backup/restore from AD and also Exchange.

    Hello,

    I am currently evaluating the ESXi for a study project. So far, my setup looks like this:

    - Physical PC as Domain Controller using Windows Server 2008 R2, several accounts in group "AD Test", one domain admin.

    - Physical Server running ESXi 5.0 Hypervisor with free license, member of domain.

    - Physical PC, Windows 7, member of domain.

    - Reverse DNS entry for ESXi exists.

    If I add a single user (member of AD Test) with rights = read only, I can use the vSphere Client with windows session data for this user.

    After adding the group "domain\AD Test" with rights = read only, and removing the single users' entries, I cannot log into my vSphere at all with this users credentials.

    I have already set Config.HostAgent.plugins.vimsvc.authValidateInterval to 10 minutes, so it's not because vmware hadn't a chance to update.

    I disabled Config.HostAgent.plugins.hostsvc.esxAdminsGroupAutoAdd, as I don't want 'automatic administrative access' for any group, but have root be the only administrator on the system. Could that affect settings for other groups?

    What could be the problem here?

    I would like some information.

    We have vcenter 5.1 installed and when the installation took place, we only had 1 domain controller.

    Since then, we have installed a second domain controller, to avoid a single point of failure.

    How do I get SSO to send requests to the second domain controller, in the event of the first domain controller being offline.

    The person who set all this up has left the organisation and there is no documentation, hence my question.

    I added the second domain controller in the secondary url, but that didn't really do anything.

    Both our domain controllers are vm's so I suspended the primary dc and kept second dc running.

    Hoping now when I try to login into vcenter using the viclient I would get authenticated, but this did not happen.

    Anyone know how I can get this to work or what I need to do.

    Try changing the port from 389 to 3268 for both Primary and Secondary URL

    From 5.1 Documentation Center:
    Primary server URL
    For Open LDAP and Active Directory, use the format ldap://hostname:port or ldaps://hostname:port
    A certificate that establishes trust for the LDAPS endpoint of the Active Directory server is required when you use ldaps:// in the primary or secondary LDAP URL.
    For OpenLDAP and Active Directory, the port is typically 389 for ldap: connections and 636 for ldaps: connections.
    For Active Directory multi-domain controller deployments, the port is typically 3268 for ldap: connections and 3269 for ldaps: connections.

    For other computers and member servers to locate this domain controller, the appropriate records must be registered in DNS. On this domain controller, look for events related to failure to set up a secure session to determine why the request is failing. If
    the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator. (event id 5815 )

    hopefully some pro has a hint to this behaviour. i stromgly believe i got all firewall ports open between the internal and external (rodc) DC's. also, i believe to have identical and complete DNS informations on the dns Servers they access.

    DB:2.89:Read Only Domain Controller - Windows 2012 R2 7k


    Hi,
    We have Domain Controller on MS-Windows 2012 R2 Standard edition, and we have implemented Read Only Domain Controller (RODC) which is on MS-Windows 2012 R2 Standard edition, which is shown below:
    Primary Domain Controller (PDC) ========Read Only Domain Controller (RODC)
    When we disconnect communication between PDC and RODC then client computers which is present at RODC locations were not able to login to their machine using Domain Credentials and when PDC and RODC are connected and on client machine when i run set l command
    then it shows logon server to PDC rather than showing RODC.
    If you can share me any URL which describes the post implementation activity after RODC then this will help me.
    Your help will be really appreciated.

    We have three Windows Server 2008 domain controllers and one Windows Server 2003 domain controller. Domain functional level is set to WindowsServer2003.

    We want to get rid of the Windows Server 2003 DC to raise the domain functional level. But the problem is when 2003 DC is removed, then Windows XP computers cannot login to the domain. They're getting this message:
    Windows cannot connect to the domain either because the domain controller is down or is otherwise unavailable or because your computer account was not found
    Seems like for some reason XP workstations are still looking for 2003 DC but instead they should connect any of other three 2008 DC-s.
    There are no login problem for Vista and Windows 7 users.

    It would to be helpful to hear some ideas, which direction should I be looking.

    DB:2.88:Removing Windows Sever 2003 Domain Controller From Server 2008 Domain Controller Environment 7x

    As already suggest ensure that clients dns setting points to point to the 2008 DC for their preferred/alternate DNS server this may be in DHCP options or the TCP/IP settings.Also change dns the pointing of DC to piont to itself as preffered
    dnssetting(assuming DNS role is installed) and also add alternate dns setting and remove the IP address of old 2003 server.
    Before you proceed with removal also verify the health of existing Win2008 server.Run dcdiag /q and repadmin /replsum to check the same.Also ensure that
    GC role is enable on all DC's.Also configure authorative time server on the PDC role holder server below is the KB article for the same.

    Hello,
    I have 2008R2 environment at my Data Center, I have a domain controller and have created a normal user there, by default administrator can RDP to other server connected in the domain, but that normal user cannot RDP to other server. If I add that normal
    user to each server's remote user then I can login , but its not possible to add each of my 50 server's remote setting. is there any way in domain controller to give some privilege to that normal user to RDP my rest of the server.

    Swaprakash..

    DB:2.87:Normal Domain User Cannot Remote Login To Servers j1

    Hi Swaprakash,
    Based on your description, it seems that the
    Restricted Groups in group policy may help you to achieve this target.

    However, there are something that you should pay attention to. If you have manually added some other user accounts
    in Remote Desktop Users group in those servers, as the below picture shows. (I add user account “RD-User1” in Remote Desktop Users group on the server.)

    Then you configure the

    Restricted Groups setting and add a domain user to Remote Desktop Users group. And apply the group policy, the original user account will be replaced with the user account which add via Restricted Groups setting. As below picture shows, the original account
    “RD-User1” (be added manually) will be replaced, just there has the user account “RD-User2”.

    If it meets your requirements, please refer to the following operations and configure Restricted Groups.

    In ADUC, create an OU, and then add serves to it.Open Group Policy Management, right click the OU and select “Create a GPO in this domain, and Link it here…”. Then create the GPO and open it.When open the GPO, the Group Policy Management Editor appear. Please follow the path and navigate to Restricted Groups setting: Computer Configuration- Policies-
    Windows Settings- Security Settings- Restricted Groups.Right click the Restricted Groups and select “Add Group…”. Then click
    Browse, type Remote Desktop Users and click Check Names, and click OK.When Remote Desktop Users Properties appear, add the user account which you want to add in the group.When configure completely, run gpupdate command.

    If anything I misunderstand or any update, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

    Hope this helps.

    DB:2.87:Xp Clients Cannot Connect To Ad Domain d7



    Hi, without knowing too much how AD works I faced issue while putting clients inside pix and leaving domain controller/file server outside.

    XP clients will use only directory mapping on simple file server.

    10.11.0.0/24 with XP-----in_PIX501(v6.34)_out-----192.168.0.0/24 with AD

    Pix does PAT and has inbound and outbound acl without any static commands.

    What traffic should allow out and what in? While I tried also without any restrictions I received prompt on XP but it failed with login/passwords.

    Thanks for usefull tips!

    DB:2.87:Xp Clients Cannot Connect To Ad Domain d7


    The best way is no NAT, so a nat 0 and static'ing across the pix is best. PAT will likely mean no functionality whatsoever. YOu want no NAT so clients can register successfully with dynamic DNS and WINS, and have those records be accurate. If DDNS is broken, you likely will have numerous active directory issues.

    Hi All,

    I wanted to experiment the new vceneter 5.5. I created two VM

    VM1 is for domain controller

    VM2 is for vcenter(vcenter has been added to domain controller)

    After installation of the vcenter I expected to be able to login using the Windows domain controller Administrator account, but was not allowed access to vcenter. I was only able to login using the SSO Default Domain Administrator Account.

    Even after login(using SSO Default Domain Administrator Account and password), when I tried to add permission for windows DC account, it denied me access.

    Normally, the goal of adding the vcenter server to domain controller is not to be able to loging with Windows DC Administrator account?

    Do anyone have the solution?

    - Still able to login using domain credentials (Cached I assume)
    - Other computers on same subnet with exact same DNS servers assigned via DHCP work fine
    - My computer appears to be the only one affected

    Things tried to resolve:
    - Tried uninstalling and updating integrated gigabit NIC
    - Tried using only my wireless interface to login
    - Then I figured I could remove the computer from the domain and then add it back.
    Bad move on my part because now I`m unable to re-add my computer to the domain

    When I attempt to re add to the domain, I am prompted for administrative credentials, I enter them, and then I get this:

    Now that I’m off the domain, I still get the Event ID 27, but I also get event ID 134 (replaces 131) and 10010 still appears when I restart or shut down.

    Since you get a message about the Domain Controller your machine still validates you against the server at the college. Is it your PC? If so then you must disconnect it from the domain, but only if you know a local admin-level password. Is it the college's

    currently we have one root domain controller (corp.com) which is empty and one child domain controller (domain.corp.com) which house all identities and resources, users log into this domain.
    if it just so happen that the root domain controller dies and child domain controller is still alive, which means that users can still login to the domain and use all resources. can we restore the root domain controller from windows server backup and the child domain would be able to recognize the root domain controller?
    i've searched through technet and it only gives scenarios where in the whole forest goes down. our probable scenario is the last root domain controller goes down but the child domain controller is still alive.

    Is the behaviour you observe related to one specific server? Or do you notice that behaviour if _any_ of your DCs failes?
    In the first case, it might be your PDC-Emulator, which is quite important for Active Directory! Can you solve that problem be transferring that role (using NTFSUTIL.EXE) to another DC?
    Cheers,
    Martin

    DB:2.81:How To Configure Secondary Domain Controller Read Only, But Prevent Write In Replication? x8


    Hi all,

    I have one primary Domain controller (dc1.abc.local) at site, production mode.

    I am trying to do some Proof of Concept with the firewall appliance, which the user datastore need extract and bind to AD.

    I am thinking setup another new computer and promote it domain controller (new.abc.local), same domain, same forest. But this only can read the configuration replicate from primary Domain controller (dc1.abc.local) but cannot write.

    Firewall will use the ID agent to pull the log event from the DC and do the IP mapping table (User - IP).

    What is the setting i need to on both domain controller?

    p.s: one criteria i cannot set this server role as RODC.

    DB:2.81:Merge Different Domain Or Joining Different Domains 8j


    We have about 10 Different Domains on Sites and one Domain (Main.local) in Head Quarter.
    All 10 Sites have 2 Dot net base Application Servers ( High Availability) SQL database (Cluster) 1 Domain Controller.
    Each Site have about 100 Users created in local domains and Application user use these users to login.
    Each Domain Users are Different from main.local Domain users Accounts naming System and we want all sites users should use same user names.

    Managing these 10 sites is not easy task, so our High management wants to merge all sites domains to Main.local
    Here i feel the issues:
    1- Different Domain Names with Different users cannot merged with Central Domain so only Solution is Trust between Domains but still Users in Site Domain cannot login to Main.local Domain
    2- If we Create new User Name for all the users in Site Domains we have to Change the Application Structure also.

    So what is the Best Thing we can do in this situation.

    DB:2.81:Merge Different Domain Or Joining Different Domains 8j

    You can either migrate users from different domains to one domain (domain with the name you want to keep) kill the domains, post migration is completed or you can create trust to allow users to access applications based on the ACL. If you configured
    two way forest trust, users can be assigned permission in trusted domain to access the application, considering application is integrated with the active directory it supports active directory authentication.

    Hi,

    The DC type is set during the DCPROMO process. There is no conversion between a full (read/write) DC and a RODC.

    To switch between full DC and RODC modes, you need to DCPROMO the DC down to a member server, then re-promote it to the new desired DC type.

    I am working on a very small setup, which involves having a server that is both a domain controller and the host for SQL Server.

    Hello,
    I cannot login to a domain controller: every time I try to do so, it gives me invalid username or password error. The credentials I use are workings as I can login to other DCs and other PCs withing this domain network. More to say, none of logins
    work on this DC. The only way I can login is by booting in safe mode.
    No malware was found but I still cannot login. Tried locally or via RDP. But the server itself works just fine - I can see it does AD replication, pings and can be pinged.

    Any idea what's wrong and how it can be fixed? The server is used only as domain controller.
    Thanks in advance.

    Devaraj G,
    I've done all that already: restarting services as well as rebooting server didn't help either . No recent pwd changes, no DNS changes, no new DC were added as well as no old ones were retired. We are using RMM to monitor our network workstations and servers
    and I got an error message that yes, there is a replication problem. But I'm not using any newly added accounts. This is my admin credentials that I've been using for the past 4 months or so. So I assume that even though there is a replication issue, this
    DC has my admin account replicated long time ago.
    The windows firewall is disabled as well.
    We have total of 3 domain controllers and only one of them is having this issue. No other servers/endpoints are affected.
    I just got lost - no idea where to look for a problem...

    DB:2.79:Block Network Access To Domain Pc From Non-Domain Computers k7

    No, that can't be done by GPO because you need to decide which Computer is authorized to get an IP.
    Open DHCP Server- Expand until IPv4 - right click and properties (i guess)
    There you will see some Tabs also the filter.
    My recomendation:
    For to fill the DHCP make no restriction. After one or two day's check the current leases and with a right click on it you can simply add this MAC to the filter list.
    After all enable the filter and that's it. No big deal.
    But make sure that you choose the allow option, not the denied ;-) This will prevent every computer on the MAC list to get an IP address from the DHCP.

    vCenter depends on an active directory environment to operate. As stated above you can find yourself with 2 critical components being offline at the same time while one of them is trying to connect to the other.

    I'm old school and don't put anything on domain controllers ever. Many a headaches have been avoided by this practice in my experience. Having a problem with a DC is painful enough let alone adding some other app to the mix. IMHO.

    Hello,
    I have a few 2012 R2 servers that are domain joined to Read Only Domain Controllers. The problem I am having is the NIC is not detecting the connection is to a domain and listing it as public. Is there a way to correct this without it needing

    Hi,
    I have a Read only domain controller which is a member of another child domain. I created a user account and a scurity group on the writable child domain, added the security group to the password replication policies on RODC from the child domain, the security
    group is set to Allow, and then prepopulated the user. When i try to log into the RODC with the user credentials, i then get You cannot log on because the log on method you are using is not allowed on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.
    Ran gpupdate from the child domain and even tried the replication on the domain controllers but still getting a same error. I've searched some solutions in google like gpupdate, checking the local user rights but none of them worked. This error is freaking

    How can i break domain administrator password... if not possible then

    Or if i got one id which have domain admins rights then how can be possible?

    If I don't want to reset the password.. then My same account password will work in AD restore mode ?
    Or Can I login with my domain admins rights account in AD restore mode ??

    No, Domain Admin and DSRM credentials are different. The DSRM password on a domain controller is initially set when the Active Directory Installation Wizard (Dcpromo) is run on a server to promote it to a domain controller.
    If you are not aware about that then as I stated above, either you can reset DSRM password or need to find out if it documented anywhere.
    Could you please explain us the need of DSRM mode? In 2008, there is no need to boot DC in DSRM mode as it has restartable AD DS service.

    "Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile and
    is attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile

    Hi everyone.

    I was wondering if I could have some help with this little problem.

    Basically, Ive made my VE a domain controller and Ive lost all access to the VZPP. The page still loads, but the username and password dont work. I removed the domain controller role and VZPP works fine.

    My theory is that VZPP looks for local user accounts and cannot recognise accounts that are in the active directory store.

    I want to remove Root Hints from DNS installed on a Read Only Domain Controller.Does anyone know how this is done?Thanks in advanceAndy

    DB:2.76:How To Remove Root Hints From Dns Installed On A Read Only Domain Controller z9

    Hi Andy, Root hints are usually unnecessary for local DNS servers. They are useful for ISP DNS servers since they contain Root DNS servers on the Public network, the Internet. You can also configure them on your local DNS servers if you have an expanded network with Primary DNS server in other locations, but that's not necessary for small and medium sized networks. To remove the root hints in server 2003 or 2008, right-click your server, go to Properties, Root Hints tabs and hit the remove button until none is left. I hope this helps.

    My environment is a private cloud using Amazon Web Services VPC, we have about 20 servers that are joined to a domain controller.
    from time to time, I encounter the error An authentication error has occured, The local security authority cannot be contacted when attempting to login using domain user account.
    This error occurs at random time to random member servers, sometimes user A encounter the error, but user B can login fine, while both user A and user B are in the same OU and same security group in the domain.

    Many times, we can only rejoin these machines to the domain, but in the long run that is not a viable solution, as it would affect the production environment.

    Any ideas on why this happen? I can understand if all users can't login, but strange enough is, certain users can, while certain users can't.

    PS/ all these machines are having the same SIDs, except the domain controller, because we deploy them based on an AMI which was created earlier, and we didn't sysprep after that.

    Hi Guys,
    while testing my upgrade to sp2013 i read the PC must be a domain controller for it to work.
    Is there any reason why i cannot install the DC role on a local PC which is on the network but not on the domain?
    Thanks

    DB:2.75:Local Machine As Domain Controller For Testing Sp2013 7s

    Thanks for your responses.
    As you rightly mention, yes i do want a long term test environment, andI have something in place similar to that which you mentioned Michael. But my issue so far with that has been, when i need the VM restored back to just having Server 2012 on it,
    I have to get in touch with the network guys to restore it back, sometimes this can take time, which then holds me back from testing.
    I thought if i had my own test machine, i can carry out all the tests on that when i'm waiting on the network guys to restore my VM.
    If i need to wipe it, i dont have to wait for others etc. This was the reason for the initial question i posted, as i read for a local machine it must be a DC.

    I cannot remember/if there is a reason why i shouldn't just add the local machine to the domain, but then i would need 2 sets up test accounts, so use on the Test VM and on the local machine, which i would add to the domain, otherwise i believe this could
    potentially cause conflicts between the two test machines?
    Again I would need the
    network guys to create another set of test accounts for me to use on the local machine,
    which would be on the domain
    I will try out both your suggestions about the Hyper V and CloudShare.

    Hi Darren,
    From what you told us, there's a communication Problem between the Clients at the branch office and the Domain Controlle at your Headquater. However, the provided Information differs during the thread - so please excuse my ignorance, but just to get this
    right....
    Is your DNS-Server for the client computers located at your Branch Office? Is it the DC (and DNS-Server) in the Headquater or is there a local DNS Server (without DC) at your branch office?

    If it's the DNS Server a your Headquater, well, you won't go anywhere as your clients won't be able to access your DNS Server in the HQ for Name-Resolution to locate your DCs. In this case you need to verify if your client computers at the branch office
    realy point to your DNS Server at the HQ and if so, open at least UDP Port 53 for the whole Subnet of your Branch Office to your DNS Server at the HQ. This must be done on the checkpoint Firewall.
    If you have a DNS Server at your branch office, how is this DNS Server configured? Does the Server host a DNS Zone for your Domain-Namespace or is it just a forwarding or caching only DNS-Server? If there's a DNS Server at your Branch Office please confirm
    the following:

    The clients at the branch office are configured to use this DNS-ServerThe DNS Server is able to communicate over UDP TCP Por 53 with your DNS Server at your Headquater - from what I understand, this is missing - please change the checkpoint configuration (you know it, UDP TCP Port 53 to you DNS Server a the headquater)
    To check the setup, please reboot a client at the branch and issue a nslookup yourDomain.com - NSLookup should return the IP-Addresses of your DCs.
    If you need further assistance, please post an Output of Ipconfig /all from all your DCs, DNS-Server and from one Branch Office and HQ client computer.

    Hi,
    I have a Windows server 2003 server that can't login to the domain for a while.
    I checked the System log and found the following:
    This computer was not able to set up a secure session with a domain controller in domain 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.

    But I have other computers in the same network - domain which doesn't have this problem..
    I can RDP into this server.
    When I go to user/groups and try to look for the members of the administrators group I only have the local admin account and sids from other users. But only local login works.

    Disjoining the Server from the domain my have negative sideeffects. I suggest that if you plan to do this that you first reset the computer account of this server. This will avoid that the computer account will get a new SID as it would be the case by
    rejoining the domain. A new SID would cause the server to get kicked out of possibly existing security groups he was in.

    Hi,

    I'm trying to add a controller (at a remote site) to our active directory domain but I keep getting an error that the AD account we're using doesn't have permissions. We ran a pktt capture and found that the filer is only communicating with the read-only domain controller (which is in close proximity). This is a problem because it's read-only and can't be updated. Is this normal behavior? I would think that it should recognize that it's a read-only DC and move on to the read/write domain controller (which is at our primary datacenter). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

What I did was set the site for the filer's IP to my RWDC site in AD Sites and Services... once that propagated, I was able to join my filer without a problem. Question now is do I leave it this way and will it impact performance?

    Hi,
    I have 2 Domain controller. Global Catalog only enable at Dc02. I noticed when i restart Dc02, A few server/workstation was unable to log on due to this error :
    The system cannot log you on due to the following error: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

    Please try again or consult your system administrator.

    Is this error related with DC02 who handling GC was not available at this time. Do i need to enable GC also to DC01 domain controller. Thank you in advanced.

    DB:2.73:Windows Smart Card Certificate Login With Ad Account Mapping From Trusted Domain fj


    We are trying to set up a CentralAD (windows2012) for our service with Outgoing external, not transitive trust to a few customer domains. The client computers are members in the CentralAD domain.

    According to documentation this should let customer user accounts authenticate to our CentralAD
    Direction of trust: Outgoing: Users in the specified domain can authenticate in the local domain, but users in the local domain cannot authenticate in the specified domain.
    Transitivity of trust: This trust is not transitive. Only users from the directly trusted domain may authenticate in the trusting domain.
    This works really well, and users from the customers Active Directory can successfully authenticate from our device with username/password/domain login.
    Now the customers need certificate login. The infrastructure in their AD works correctly for certificate to AD account mapping. Problem is when the customers enters smart card and pin on our device in CentralAD, the user cannot be autheticated.
    When testing this in different scenarios it looks like certificate mapping to AD account needs the user to be in the the same domain as the computer ? When logging in with username/password they also specify domain and the Windows functions automatically
    sends the login request to the right domain controller. Anyone know of how to get the login request to go to the correct domaincontroller when logging in with smart card, or get the CentralAD to try the other trusted domains for certificate login ?

    DB:2.73:Smb - Domain Login From Xp Not Working cm


    I have been testing using my MacOSX 10.5.3 server as PDC for Windows XP machines. I set it up on my test server with no problems. Enabled the SMB service, promoted it to a Primary Domain Controller and then a few other minor tweaks and away we went. I got mapped home folders and login script work really quickly. Because of this success I decided to integrate it into a server roll out I am doing at the moment with an Xserve and OSX10.5.4. I setup the SMB service promote it to a PDC and everything is perfect. I get a clean built Windows XP SP2 machine connect it to the domain, reboot, go to login but I get an error saying that "Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable or because you computer account was not found....".
    After check things several times as well as other people confirm various options I am lost.

    To add further confusion I went back to my test server removed my XP machine from the domain and re-added it to start testing my problem and holy cow I got the same error message.

    The only difference is the 10.5.4 update I did after I setup my test server must have changed something thats stops me from logging in. Can anyone help??

    DB:2.73:Only Domain Controller Cannot Find Itself zd


    Hi there,
    Attempting to join a server to the domain, but having issues.

    Two virtualized Server 2008 R2 machines. DC is running, but when opening the Manage Your Server window it cannot connect to its own Active Directory. Also cannot access the NETLOGON share.
    Second server cannot contact a domain controller when attempting to join the domain.
    There were previously two DC's, orangebox and blackmesa which are no longer in existence. I seized their roles using the FSMO Maintenance console.

    Where should I start? The only domain controller can't even contact itself (???). Thank-you,

    DB:2.73:Only Domain Controller Cannot Find Itself zd


    Run gpupdate /force and check the application log you may get event id 1704(Source:SceCli).If you recieve the same then you can ignore the error in dcdiag log since this has occured due to netlogon and sysvol share was not available.

    In case if you report error message in application log post the same.

    DB:2.73:Strange Gp Error On Domain Controller 83


    The message below has been lighting up my event viewer for a few weeks.

    The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file
    \\domain.A.local\sysvol\domain...local\Policies\{ID...}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused
    by one or more of the following:
    a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.

    b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller).

    c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.
    Background: this message is on a 2008r2 domain controller, domainA.local. This domain has a read-only trust with domainB.local, which is at a remote site and running on a 2003 domain controller. In other words, domainA.local looks to domainB.local
    for user authentication, but domainB.local can't do the same to domainA.local.
    The only reason the trust is setup is for users at domainB.local to be able to login to domainA.local with their domainB.local credentials.
    I wouldn't be concerned if the error said it couldn't ready a policy from domainB.local, but I think this is basically saying the domain can't read information from itself.
    I'm not sure what else to provide, so feel free to tell me I'm crazy or silly for not providing something else. :-)

    DB:2.73:Extract Login Logoff History Information - Powershell x8



    I trying to extract login logoff history by using powershell. I tried different script and still cannot get the collect information

    I create 10 aduser in domain controller. They can login into the client computer. So i want to get their login logout history from the log event

    This code only export the login and logout history about admin account in domain cpntroller.

    $UserProperty = @{n=User;e={(New-Object System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier $_.ReplacementStrings[3]).Translate([System.Security.Principal.NTAccount])}}
    $TypeProperty = @{n=Action;e={if($_.EventID -eq 7001) {Logon} else {Logoff}}}
    $TimeProeprty = @{n=Time;e={$_.TimeGenerated}}
    Get-EventLog Security -Source Microsoft-Windows-Winlogon `| Select $UserProperty,$TypeProperty,$TimeProeprty | Export-Csv output.csv

    However, i can see the login logout record in the Event viewer.but i cannot extract it...

    If it still cannot extract. I need to setup a logon/logoff script for all aduser. When theylogon/logoff
    on the client computer. The username and datetime will be recorded into the txt and stored in the domain controller (C:/record.txt).

    DB:2.73:Extract Login Logoff History Information - Powershell x8


    Hi Vicky,
    The first step to extract the AD user logon/logoff history is to enable the required audit settings to generate the logon/ logoff events.
    The steps for generating logon/ logoff events are as follows,
    1. Open GPMC console, click Start -- Administrative Tools -- Group Policy Management.
    2. Create a new GPO and link it to the OU containing Domain Controllers and Client Computers.
    (Since the logon events will be generated in the Domain Controllers, Whereas logoff events will be generated in Client Computers)
    3. Now right click the Group Policy, and then click Edit.
    4. Navigate to Audit Policy node, “Computer Configuration/ Policies/ Windows Settings/ Security Settings/ Local Policies/Audit Policy”.
    5. Now enable the Success and Failure auditing for Audit logon events setting.
    6. Execute the command “GPUPDATE /FORCE” in the Domain Controller to force apply the GPO settings.
    7. Also execute the command “GPUPDATE /FORCE” to force apply the GPO settings.

    For Windows Server 2008 R2 and later versions, additional configuration is required in Advanced Audit Policy Configuration” section of the Group Policy.

    For additional auditing configuration of Logon/Logoff,

    Navigate to Logon/Logoff node, (Computer Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Advanced Audit Policy Configuration/Audit Policies/Logon/Logoff).
    Enable Success and Failure auditing for the following settings
    - Audit Logoff
    - Audit Logon

    Now we have enabled all the required audit settings mandatory for extracting the logon/logoff history.

    FYI - The“logoff” events may not be generated for cases such as, if the user did not log off his machine by hibernating the machine, network connectivity issues, power failure, force shutdown etc.

    Gopi

    DB:2.73:Broken Network Paths (Unc Names - \\Server) d7


    Love 7 so far!  But today I needed to access a share (\\servername\share) but when I went to type it, it came up cannot connect.  We're on a domain with AD, and noticed in eventvwr that GP not processing:The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\internal.domain\SysVol\internal.domain\Policies\{5682A7A2-6BAE-4655-8DB6-7CAF8ECC6042}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following: a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller. b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller). c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.Also would not map network drives.  Anyways, ended up doing a system restore to a known working point in time, and that seemed to work, until I rejoined the computer to domain  (since it had lost the trust relationship because of the system restore), but after a few group policies processed, and a couple critical updates were installed, it broke again.  So now I unplug from the network at bootup, login, then plug network back in, and it seems to be a workaround for now, but hopefully it's only a temporary one.  Any Ideas?

    DB:2.73:Broken Network Paths (Unc Names - \\Server) d7

    I had this problem too.  For me, it happened when I tried to do a program install from a mapped network drive.  Shortly after that, I would have problems getting to network shares using the UNC name (even though ping worked), plus I would find that group policy error in the logs the original poster mentioned.So I got rid of all my mapped drives and have not seen this problem since (knock on wood).

    DB:2.73:Exchange 2007 Ews 401 Unauthorized On Exchange 2007 And Domain Controller 2008 Both Running On Windows 2008 Servers fx


    We have implemented a EWS application to synchronize calendar items using push notifications in Java.
    It is working fine on Exchange 2007 with domain controller 2003. We can connect to EWS with an account that has full access rights on some mailboxes.
    When we setup another environment using Exchange 2007 on windows 2008 server and a domain controller on windows 2008.The account cannot login to EWS. The account can login using OWA. When connecting to EWS we get a 401 Unauthorized error.
    We have looked at the authentication in IIS 7 and the accountin the Active Directory. It seems similar to our 2003 environment but we are not able to get it working. We use Integrated Windows Authentication only and in Java specify NTLM as authentication method.
    We have installed WireShark to monitor the http connection between the client and the exchange 2007 server and see the NEGOTIATE started but keeps failing. Seems like the client and the server cannot get an agreement about NTLM connection to EWS.
    Any idea?
    What can be different in authorization when using Exchange 2007 on windows 2008 and domain controller 2008 compared with Exchange 2007 on windows 2003 and domain controller 2003 ?

    DB:2.73:Exchange 2007 Ews 401 Unauthorized On Exchange 2007 And Domain Controller 2008 Both Running On Windows 2008 Servers fx

    I have the same issue. If I host my ASP.NET web client on any other machine in the same domain as my Windows 2008 Server running exchange 2007 I'll have no problems. Once I host the web client on the Windows 2008 Server (also my domain controller)
    running exchange 2007 I experience access problems.

    Any updates?
