Preferred Solution: There are no logon servers are available error while accessing the Share

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.)

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

Hey guys,

I have set up a computer to log in automatically at startup using windows 7 user accounts controls. Every once in a while when the computer starts up it will fail to login with the aforementioned error and prompt for the password. I'm working with local adminstrative privelages and the computer is included in my company's active directory environment (and managed by their group policy). What i THINK is happening is that GP is overwritting some of the registry values periodically causing the autologin proccess to fail. Does this sound like the problem? If so, does anyone know of a way to get around this?

Thanks a bunch!

A:Error: There are currently no logon servers available to service the..

If you restart the system after one of these failures, does it fail again? That information may help us to determine whether the problem is registry based, which would probably be a permanent issue (until the registry is changed back to how you want it), or something else.
Also, I am going to ask that this be moved to our network forums since your question is suited more for the experts there.

Why is sharing so hard on windoze???

I have tried everything I could find to get this to work. Seems like renaming the user in 7 has caused the problem. Sharing works fine on a new user that I created but will not work on the renamed account. I even tried this

Dont know whether I have to disconnect the cisco router which inturn would prevent us from accessing our ISP's modem internet.

A:no logon servers available to service the logon request

If no other variables in the network has changed it does sound like some kind of routing or DHCP mismatch which needs reconfiguring.

Would you know what I mean If I said can can you logon to a profile local to the client (i.e not on the server) and 'ping' the domain server IP address from a command prompt? Equally can you ping an internet address such as google.com?

We have a Win 7 desktop at our Senior Center. I am no expert, but am the volunteer who tries to take care of our computers. I was told to make it so that the general public could not logon on to one specific computer, as it is the one we are going to use to create our newsletter, and we didn't want anyone messing with it, as there are two other computers they can use.

I went into control panel, and as best I can remember, I set up a user name and password. I do not know what a domain is, in the sense of Win 7. I get that error message every time, in spite of believing that I get the username and password correct. How can I undo what I did, so that authorized volunteers can use this machine, which happens to be the only Win 7 computer, the others being Vista or Win XP, and MS Publisher which we will be buying must run on Win 7/8?

I will do something drastic, if called for, such as opening the case and removing the BIOS battery for a while if that would reset anything germane to the problem.

I really must get an answer, or we cannot get out the next newsletter using MS Publisher.

Hi all,

I work for a company that has several servers that I access via a vpn. I have DSL and use a 2WIRE 1000HW. This equipment allows connection to the DSL line 4 different ways; directly to the modem via USB cable or an ethernet cable, or via wireless, or via hpna. I can access all the company servers when I directly connect via the USB/ethernet cables. But when I connect via the wireless or hpna I can access some but not all the servers.

Any ideas on how to get to all the servers via wireless/hpna would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

we have a server/client windows 2000 network here. Every once in a while, when trying to get a resource from the server, I will get a message telling us that 'there are no logon servers to service the logon request'.

Sometimes I will get this after hours when no one is on the network but me. Does this indicate low network resources? Out server is a Dell Poweredge with tons on RAM.

Another issue is the DNS. I don't know enough about DNS to mess with the settings. All I know is we have a local domain in the office. Everyday, my event viewer is full of the same event (5774, I think). I says something about the DNS format cannot be interpreted. Could this be dragging the network down?

Getting frustrated.....

Thanks,

Mike
 

A:no logon servers?

Is the 2000 server the only server on the network? Is it the only domain controller? Is it possible it's working on a nightly utility such as doing a back up or defrag? If the CPU is doing something intensive, it won't take the time to service a login request. Also it's possible that logins are disabled at a certain time of the night for the above mentioned utilities.

You'll need to post the exact error message. Someone coming through may recognize it instantly, if not hang tight and someone will come up with more troubleshooting ideas.

Hello,

We have about 250 users on our domain, managed by one of our domain controllers which runs Windows Server 2003 x64. For our remote users, very often, even when just recently to our VPN network and working off shared DFS drives which require Windows
domain authentication, on logon users will get the error: There are currently no logon servers available

WIFI for these users is on and is connected to the home/home office network prior to logon. They could have been on VPN the day before and next morning will see the "There are currently no logon servers available error" out of nowhere.

How can we prevent this problem from happening? I thought that Windows caches the logons and if it had recent communication with the domain controller or was authenticated by using DFS/Domain shares/just had a successful Windows login, will have
no problems logging in.

The only workaround is to login as local admin user (non-domain admin) and rejoin the domain. What could be causing this particular issue? Please advise! Thank you

Good Morning All,
 
We have 3 computers that are taken off the network during the evenings, up to this point, we have just been using local accounts on the computers and no server accounts.  Now the call has been made to provide everyone server accounts and do away with the local accounts.  I know that when they are off site, they will get the "No Logon servers currently available" sign at login.  My question is I have heard about cached credentials, how do they work, is it something that I have to setup for them to be cached or something I have to enable?  I am new to the idea of being able to logon away from the domain.  We do not currently have a VPN connection available but are in the process of setting one up.
 
Our server is Windows Server 2008.  And the laptops are running Windows 7 Pro.
 
Thanks!!
 

A:No Logon Servers Available - Cached Credentials

The credentials should be cached by GPO, called cached credentials. One simple thing to remember is that you must still have them log on while on your network for the first time. After that they will be able to log on even when not connected.  Also remember that this setting "times out" so to speak.  If they are gone for months on end then you might want to consider VPN's as well.

Here's the sequence of events that seems to have led up to the problems.  

Users reported having to reboot after windows updatesUsers received BIOS message that there are no available windows installations and that SecureBoot has caused a problem.  This was directly related to the Recent Windows Update (MS16-100

My Windows 7 machine runs in the subnet 192.168.1.x (actual IP 192.168.1.33) and there is a Linux machine with windows share (smb or Samba) on a different subnet 192.168.2.x (actual IP 192.168.2.5). There is a router inbetween of course.

You'll probably need to set up a static route on the router from the 192.168.1.x subnet to the 192.168.2.x subnet. From the Windows PC, can you ping anything on the 192.168.2.x network?

Afternoon all,

I run an Ubuntu box as a SAMBA server, sharing my media collection. (recently upgraded to Ununtu 9.10)

I have configured the server for WOL, so that it automatically goes into an S3 state when there is no network activity and can be woken from this by sending a magic packet from any of my client machines.

What I'd like to achieve is the automatic sending of a magic packet whenever I try to open any media on the server using my HTPC (mediaportal frontend running on Win7 Pro). I currently have it set up so that I can just run a batch file to send the packet before trying to access the media, however this means having to minimise MP and execute a batch file manually before going back into MP and opening the media. I'd like to automate this in some way, so that the batch file is automatically executed (or the packet send is initiated in some other way) whenever the system tries to access any files on the SAMBA share (mapped as a network drive).

I'm sure that it will be possible, but my brain really isn't engaging today...think that half bottle of Southern Comfort last night may have something to do with it, lol.

Here's a weird one for you experts.

Background: I have an XP pro x32 machine on wireless with shared folders, a 7 Ultimate x64 machine (fresh install) on wireless, and Linksys Wireless/wired router (I'll get the model number later, can't remember). I've had the shares on xp set up for a long time and never had an issue with them on XP or Vista machines. The two machines are on the same router, same subnet, same workgroup (home), individually assigned IPs, and can access the outside fine. 7 does not have a "share group" set up.

Issue: Whenever I access a shared folder from the 7 machine it connects fine until I start to transfer files. It will make it anywhere from a few seconds to a couple of minutes before the wireless connections on both machines are dropped. The connection problems only happen when copying shared files; I can browse shared folders or internet all I want.

I've been through the How-to-share tutorials but no change. Any ideas what to try next?

Side note that may or may not have any bearing: I had been having an issue where the wireless adapter didn't exist (device manager or anywhere else) after coming back from sleep. That required me to reboot to see it again. I fixed it by disabling the save power feature on the driver and disabling sleep mode.

Intel Core 2 Duo
8GB RAM

It never had issues connecting with the share before now. Now every time I try to connect it to the share, it tells me that the password for the account is invalid. As the account for the workstation had no encrypted or protected files on the server, I just went and reset the password to make sure it hadnt gotten changed some how. This however did not fix the issue. The computer is able to access the internet and see that the server indeed exists on the network, but for what ever reason is not able to access the share any longer.

Any ideas?

I want to prevent users from accessing share folders after typing the IP Address and press Enter it should popup an error message not after the users be able to see all those shared folders and when they click on the shared folder it receive an error message like access denied.

So far I have set NTFS and Share folder permission but doesn't work for the URL bar with IP Address, however it works fine when users click on the shared folder.

Hi,

I have a laptop (with win 7 home premium) connected wirelessly to the router. I have a server connected (wired) with some shared folders on it.

Now, when I try to open the networkshare on my laptop (when I'm connected wireless to the network), it won't work 3/4 of the times I try. But to let it work, I just do a ping to the IP of the server and when I try again the networkshare will open. Very strange.

When I'm connected to the network with a wired connection, the networkshare will always open up directly.

Is something wrong with my wireless connection? I have an excellent signal and installed the latest drivers for the network card.

My network is setup as followed:

Wireless router -> switch (downstairs) -> switch (upstairs)
My laptop is wirelessly connected to the router. The server is connected to the switch that's upstairs.

Hope I explained it well.

Thanks,
Mathew

I asked this question recently, then realized I may have asked in the wrong forum. Here is my problem : trying to access folders shared on a win 7 machine from a win xp machine is causing windows explorer to crash. The issue is intermittent and I can't figure out at all what is causing it. So far I haven't gotten an answer from anyone that has helped resolve the problem. Please help, I'm getting frantically desperate to fix it at this point

I have four systems; three are win7 and one is win2k. All of the win7 systems can see each other fine and all systems are in the same workgroup. Win2k has a shared drive and folders with permissions set to "Everyone"

I have put this key into the registry on my win7 system
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters DhcpNodeType value set to 1

I can always ping the win2k machine from a cmd prompt and get a good response. I can sometimes access the shared items however other times a get a box asking for a user/password. When I input what I know to be the pw, it says bad user name pw.

Here is what really perplexes me. When I logoff of the win7 machine and log right back on, I can access the win2k machine without any problem. This lasts for a while and then reverts to the login problem.

One other item. When I logoff of the win7 machine then log back in, the view of the win2k share is changed from "List" to tiles. I can change it back without problems however the next time I do this, it is back to tiles.

My computer is on a peer-to-peer LAN, and whenever a peer computer tries to access my shares, they are required to enter a username and password. How do I let peers access shares without this headache? I'm using W2K Pro, and my peers are using Win XP Home.
 

A:Windows share requires logon

Create an account on your machine with the same name and password as the clients are using, they will be able to access file shares without a password.

I have group of PC's on a network, not a domain. The NAS drive crashed and I reset it. Renamed it to what it was before but did not change the password this time. All but one machine logs in using this password and username. But the rogue XP one does not, it says there is someone logged in with another password and does not support multiple passwords. Is there some kind of cache that still has the old password in it that I can delete? My only other possible thought is to rename the NAS drive and see if it will logon this way. It maps the open share fine.

Hi:

I have user who took domain computer home because of Covid.  He has logged onto the computer at home for the last two months using his domain account with no problems.  Today it's kicking back error no logons servers available.  I can log onto
the machine as a different domain account.  How to fix this issue when the machine not on the LAN?  I can logon as a domain admin, connect to VPN, then disjoin/rejoin to domain but not sure if it will fix it and perhaps easier way to reset user's
profile so he can logon?

Thanks for any insights!

I know this issue has been bouncing around for a long time however my googles have not come up with an answer for me.
I have a win10 machine (recently upgraded from 7 professional) for which I created a disc image and stored it on my win7 machine on the same workgroup. Both machines are 64 bit. From my win10 boot disc I am unable to log on to win7. I have installed network
drivers, checked ipconfig and all seems ok. From RE cmd prompt I can connect to win7 just fine, see the backup and can presumably restore it although I haven't tried. I have confirmed that the security property for not storing passwords on win7 is disabled.
On the RE interface, I have tried every imaginable form of syntax to logon to win7 but nothing is working. I have read that others have the same issue and have resorted to just using the RE cmd because the regular RE interface is not reliable. I would still
prefer the RE approach and am wondering if anybody has come up with a solution that I have not found. 
thanks in advance

Windows 7 File Explorer is freezing, throwing errors, and not responding when attempting to access specific files on a network share intermittently. This has been an ongoing issue for a long time now and I have not been able to find a solution that worked.
I have tried numerous other forms answers and google searches.

Some background.
We have a DFS network share that is hosted at a remote data-center and shared with other locations. All our computers are still windows 7 64 bit Enterprise edition based off the same image. The computers at the other locations are setup with different domains,
hardware, and computer images. I have not heard any issues at for the file share at other locations only here. Here the issues occur for every computer that attempts to access the specific files. Accessing the files sometimes work and sometimes doesn't. When
it doesn't its the same files for everyone. After a while those files will start working and other files will now have the issue.

The issue is that when trying to copy, open, delete, or manipulate the file in any way explorer or what ever program is trying to access the file will stop responding, crash, or throw an error. Typically the files are .dotm word template files. When in the
directory of the problematic file, file explorer will load for ever until it gives up with the little green loading bar slowly going across the top. After trying to open, move, copy, or delete the file We will get these errors. There are no ... Read more

When the user tries to login into their laptop whether cabled into our domain network or not, they receive a message "there are currently no logon servers available to service this request".  but if cabled into the network and they wait 5 minutes, they
are able to sign in without issue but it takes 2 to 3 minutes to load the page.  I signed into the laptop with my domain admin account and received the same message as the user, but when we tried cabled in (5 minutes later), i was able to sign in without
issue.  The troubleshooting steps:
1.  Updated the network driver today (still receiving same result)
2.  Re-added the computer to the domain today (still receiving same result)
3.  the event viewer is showing the 5719 NETLOGON message and also 1129 (but the user has been receiving this for a number of months)
4.  The only thing we haven't tried is creating a new user profile but the only reason I don't see that working is because if its happening with my domain admin account it can't be a profile issue. 

Any ideas of what could be causing this and is there a fix for it?  I do see there is a hotfix but wasn't sure if we should run it or not.

At work, there's another server in a different domain and when accessing shares we sometime get the message prompt for credentials and system detected compromised security...etc.  It's very random in nature, although, once the share comes up it then
never prompts afterwards for that session.  It's 2008 server win 7 clients.
