Logging in on active directory: netlogon not enabled

Q: Logging in on active directory: netlogon not enabled

We have a windows 2000 server machine here at work. I didn't set it up but I am trying to get it working. I have the active directory running in a domain. I created and account and try to login but get the error message "cannot login because netlogon is not enabled" The only account that will login is the admin account. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Logging in on active directory: netlogon not enabled

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Logging in on active directory: netlogon not enabled

I don't really know the answer to this but that error sounds like the Netlogon service hasn't been started.

I would recommend checking that it is on Automatic and is Started. Services is located under Settings / Control Panel.

Sorry if this isn't directly Windows 7 related...but I'm struggling with it nonetheless.

I'm having an issue setting up a Mail Enabled Public Folder. I have the folder created, and anonymous are given proper access to allow incoming messages. My Exchange version is 2010 SP1, full updated, running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 box. Whenever I send a message to the mailbox's address, I get an undeliverable:

[email protected]
#554 5.2.0 STOREDRV.Deliver.Exception:ObjectNotFoundException; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message The Active Directory user wasn't found. ObjectNotFoundException: The Active Directory user wasn't found. ##

I know the e-mail address is typed in correctly, but I can't seem to figure out why messages aren't going through. I searched online and found some suggestions, all of which either didn't pertain to our environment, or involved patches...which I have installed.

Hello --

I've searched quite a bit and have done quite a bit... this is my last stop before I dump the login and go to something else.

I had a profile that was acting odd not loading different apps slow logins etc so I wanted to basically wipe it and start over and now i'm having issues.

I started by deleting everything about the login from both active directory the server profiles folder and even the individual computers that are used to login with it at.

To do so I deleted the folders out of the users/%username% and then also went into regedit and deleted the profilelist with the username as well.

To me the profile should literally be as if it never existed....

Next I recreated it in active directory recreated it's folder in the profile database and attempted to login...

the computer immediately goes to a black screen and then says logging off and back to login.

I've looked up several fixes but none have worked.. at this point i'm open to trying anything...

I've been fighting with some sort of redirect virus. Checked my computer with Malwarebates in Safe MOde, Normal Mode, etc. It did find some viruses but removed them and nothing is present anymore. I also checked my comp with BitDefender online scanner, SuperAntiSpyware, HijackTHis. They don't find any viruses. Computer works fast, although aftre all this checking and removal I found that sometimes when I click two windows too fast it locks and I have to reboot it by reset button.
Now the annoying part is that when I do Google search it still redirects me to various random sites. I also found that when I disable active scripting it does not do that, but then I cannot view YOuTube movies, etc.
Is ther a way to analyze and search for scripts that cause this. I assume it's just some stupid script that gets activated when I'm on line, because none of the AV programs I use finds any viruses anymore.
Any help would be appreciated

Hey Guys,

Running Windows 7 Ultimate on a Gateway MT6728 laptop for one of my security cameras which uses the Yawcam software. Due to LogMeIn recently becoming a pay-only service I have set up Remote Desktop on all four of my machines running cameras and only this machine is giving me the strange issue of seemingly logging itself out of the Windows session at random times throughout the day. Rarely does it make it 24 hours without my camera suddenly shutting off. When this happens, I am still able to remote into the laptop and find that the Yawcam software has shut down (along with anything else that might've been open during the session). After checking the log it doesn't look like the system is crashing, just seems to be logging off for some reason.

I have checked everything I can think of. All power options have been configured never to timeout and I've ran chkdsk on the HD to make sure there are no issues there. I have also updated the Yawcam software to the latest version.

This is issue did not start until I enabled Remote Desktop. Before then when it was running LogMeIn the camera stayed on and the Windows session stayed logged in indefinitely with no problems.

Does anyone have any idea what else I can look into for resolution?


A:Windows 7 possibly logging off after Remote Desktop enabled?

Is the PC joined to a domain ? A domain policy can be set to logoff users after work hours.

Has the PC's Windows been activated yet? I have heard that a non-activated machine will shutdown after x number of hours and shows as non-genuine at the bottom right corner of the desktop.

Please see the title - two parts, but this is my only question.   I do not need help resetting IE, or troubleshooting IE - I want to enable IE event logging, and I am looking for a step by step guide to doing this.  It seems as though I have
it enabled, but the log has zero entries.

This thread has the same question, and some genius marked it answered, although it should be pretty obvious to anyone with the ability to read and comprehend written English language that the question was not answered, and in fact, the person who asked the
question was completely ignored after the initial answer (which I do not for a minute believe was even close to the right answer):  https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ie/en-US/bfecbfd3-ffc8-4279-a006-64a1cd248621/can-we-get-windows-event-logging-with-internet-explorer-10-and-windows-8?forum=ieitprocurrentver
If you look, you will see that the log exists in Windows 10, and at least on the machine I am on, the properties say enabled (although that is greyed out and cannot be altered).    The way I see it there are a couple of possibilities here:
1)  Logging is a relic that doesn't actually work and for whatever reason was never removed from the code tree.

A:How do you enable event logging for Internet Explorer in Windows 10, and how can I verify that it is enabled?

Hi Harry,
Please see the Event Viewer How to documentation here -
To use event viewer you need to have a pro or enterprise edition of windows and an administrators account on your computer. If you are using a work computer consult with your company's IT staff.
Start>Control Panel>Administrative tools>Event Viewer
Windows logs>Appliction
will list any iexplore.exe application error logs.... I think it depends on your computer settings for sending feedback to Microsoft, whether or not error logs are automatically generated and sent back to Microsoft.
If you have no entries in that list for IE then it has not had any application errors. There also should be listings for other programs there apart from IE....

Hi Everyone,

So in active directory I have Generic User accounts (e.g Security, Sales, Transport) as well as email accounts attached to them, Then I have user accounts (e.g John, Michael) and they have their personal email accounts attached to outlook but they will also both have the "SALES" Email address attached to their inbox in outlook.

The above is working great but my problem now comes in below.

Due to company policy we need to Lock the generic accounts down to only the computers that they are needed to log onto. (e.g in AD right click generic account then select properties, then Account, the "LOG ON TO...")

See Image below:

When i add in the computer names into the generic accounts after about 2H the generic email address stop working and refuses to accept the password. Even if i log on with the generic account Outlook still refuses to accept the password.

I have a Win2000 server, main DC for 80 users with Active Directory. We don't use Exchange and I wanted to remove it. Tried uninstalling but that messed up our IIS webpage, so I restored system state and all was fine.
Then I followed Microsoft directions for manually removing Exchange. Still messed up IIS webpage (said it's under construction) even though IIS was reinstalled. At the same time it messed up Active Directory even though system state was restored to earlier good state, and all I can figure is it happened because the Exchange object was deleted from AD.
Now my 2nd Win 2000 DC won't recognize or see anything on the entire network but itself, although it can be accessed across the network and does replicate AD from the other server. It doesn't show the other 2 domains on NT servers except when I was rebooting the main 2000 DC.
My users can't access some of their folders on the main server (this server is a key file server for active work) so I have given some of them logons on one of the other domains, but it's an old domain I am phasing out and so still they can't access everything they need from one logon.
Trust relationships are OK. DNS is OK. AD replicates to the other server. Creating new logons on AD doesn't help - they are as messed up as the old ones. No DHCP. No Internet connection, no connection to anything outside, no wireless access to the network - it is totally self-contained and internal.

Ok folks, I have this issue with NT4.0 where I need to add it to our active directory services domain. Microsoft has a client which I believe (I can be wrong) facilitates this. The name of the client is Active Directory Client Extension for nt4.0. Ok so I installed the client and attempted to create a computer account in our active directory domain which has more than 16 characters, however when I attempted to input the domain name form the NT workstation, I cant exceed 16 characters. I would appreciate if anyone has any insight into this problem as Microsoft's website provides no assistance to that issue whatsoever. Many thanks and kindest regards.

Can you manually add the computer to the domain on the AD controller?

Did you try entering the pre windows 2000 domain name? You can find this out by going onto the domain controller and opening up the active directory users and computers snap in. Then right click the domain name and click properties. There is a field there that gived the pre 2000 domain name. Should be usable from NT.

We will be upgrading our Server to Win2k and implementing Active Directory and was wondering what effect Active Directory will have on Data Recovery - Are there any issues with this, any differences we should know about.

Also when we upgrade the PDC to Win2k DC, it is a must that we install or configure Active Directory at the same time?

Thanks for all your help

A:Active Directory

You do not have to install AD when upgrading, it can be installed later. One thing to keep in mind is to install DNS on the DC during the upgrade or prior to installing AD as dynamic DNS is required for AD to work. It does not have to support anything but AD. As for Data recovery, my understanding is that there is a AD plugin for Backup Exec (if that is what you are using, probably one for each backup system) that you need to backup AD. It is structurally similar to SQL server and needs the plugin to deal with the AD db being open during backups.

If I am wrong, please correct me!

Hai team

My Active Directory is running on windows 2000 server Is there any scope for me to make a Authentication password contain a numeric & special Character for all the users in the adcivetirectory
replay me urgently.

A:Active Directory

I don't know if there is anyway to force to use Special characters. You can set a group policy to force password complexity and you can also use a utility called passprop which in the 2000 resource kit. I think both of these only enforce you to use uppercase and lowercase as well as numbers. I am not sure if it will force special characters. These are the only two ways I know of. You should definitely be forcing the password length in a group policy because Microsofts password encyrption algorith has a flaw in it. If you have ever used lopht crack you will notice that it can immediately figure out characters 8 thru 13 when it tries to crack a password. So you need to force password lengths 14 or greater.

Look at this link.

What steps has to do to all users [client machines] logging server B and continue their work with out disturbance…?

If you setup the additional Domain Controller as a Replication Partner it will take control if the primary Domain Controller fails, so the clients don't have to do any thing.

Even if you set the account to full access 24/7, password never expires, they still can be locked out. Has anyone come across this before????

I'm attempting to run Active Directory in Win2000 Server from MMC, using "Run As" to log on to the domain. Not having much luck. My support at work is not the most helpful (imagine that?). It's an odd setup...I have my own server for my dept, but cannot log on with my domain account. So I'm looking for a way to access Active Directory while logged in as the local admin on my server. Confused? I am. Any suggestions helpful.

A:MMC and Active Directory

When trying to access a server, you can only use the default domain admin account. You cannot use any other account to log onto the server itself. If you would like to administer active directory through your workstation, simply install the administrative tools from the Windows 2000 Server CD on your workstation. The admin tools are located in the Support Folder, Tools Folder. Once you install those, you will have to right click the task bar and click properties. Click on the advance tab and put a check box next to Display Administrative Tools. Remember also, in order to administer Active Directory through your workstation, you need add your domain user account to the Domain Admins group on the server itself. To access the active directory tools, you can then just simply click start, programs and then administrative tools. YOU CANT USE LOCAL ADMIN ACCOUNTS TO ACCESS ACTIVE DIRECTORY.

Seemingly huge problem seeking a possibly easy solution.

Ok. Background is our network runs on MS Small Business Server 2000. Users and computers were set up on Active Directory running a domain. A few weeks ago our server got hit with a virus that caused us to do a full reinstall. Active Directory was rebuilt from the ground up. Easy part was adding all the users again. Problem now is that none of the computers are registering on Active Directory.

Easy fix was to unjoin the domain and rejoin it. Solution works, but problem is that it creates a new user profile instead of using the one that was in there already. Tried to switch names (rename the new user profile to something else, rename the old user profile to the new one) but every time I logged in afterwards it created another new profile. Also tried to add the computer name to Active Directory, but that did no good either.

Anybody else have a better idea? I'd rather not unjoin and rejoin every single workstation and also migrate every single user profile on every single workstation to the new profile.

A:Active Directory

Sorry dude. You have to to rejoin all computers to the domain. There's no way around that. In the future, you can copy everyone's profiles to the server and when you recreate their user account, just set their profile to Roaming so their old profiles propagate down to their computers. Then you can set it back to local if you like. The reason why their old profiles won't work is because the security identifyers are different. Every user has one. Even if you reinstall Active Directory with the same configuration as before, it won't matter.

If you go into your profiles tab on one of the computers, it will most like say "Account Unknown."

k guys, I posted the same thread in security.
ok my question is can I access my active directory on my servers through other workstations I have connected.?? is there software I have to buy or download and if so what is it called???? or is there another method for this.
ps. im running windows 2k on my server and workstations.

A:active directory

You should be able to, W2k looks for AD by default, if you cannot see it, run dcpromo from a command prompt and follow the clicks, when you installed W2k server, did you enable AD or install as a 'standard' (i.e. NT4) server ??.
If you're running AD, you need to enable GPO and enforce policies to get the most from it.

Is there anyway to install Active Directory on Windows XP? I know you can set up windows to use IIS and turn it into a webserver but I wasn't sure about Active Directory. Thanks for anyone who can help.

I am using Windows vista x64 business and when I click the find button under the actions menu in active directory users and computers mmc.exe crashes. I have tried running the snap-in dsa.msc directly and also using the search active directory button located above the network explorer window the same thing occurs there as well. The event log shows the following about the crash.

Faulting application mmc.exe, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47919524, faulting module printui.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791adcf, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00000000000366a5, process id 0xed8, application start time 0x01c99df5e22e7717.

I have been struggling with this for a few weeks now, any help would be greatly appreciated. This problem only occurs on the computers running this OS, I have replicated the error on several other machines all running vista business x64.
