Domain Controller/WINS Problem?

By anton_sia ·
My company has multiple BDC (~10) configured in the domain. We also have 2 WINS Servers for name resolution. Recently, users have been experiencing frequent login problems. There are lots of 5719 errors in the BDC and member servers (i.e. No WindowsNT Domain Controller is available for domain <domain_name>.The following error occurred: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.)
Usually these errors will go away after we reset the secure connection or reboot the server. Till now I am having a hard time tracing the root cause of the problem. I am suspecting that it could either be WINS or the DC.
I am now thinking of scheduling regular reboots of the all the DC and Wins servers so that the secure channels are reset periodically.
Will this cause more problems? Or does anyone have a better suggestion to track down the root cause?

Domain Controller/WINS Problem?

Here is an option for you..In Perf Mon set up a log to monitor SMB's and Server requests to find out what is happening and when this normally occurs (load..ie. morning afternoon...etc). there is two utilities with NT Reskit that take less load than Perfmon and run in the background I found them to be Very useful when tracking problems or creating a baseline. They are Monitor and Datalog. I hope this helps..Well atleast you will be able to pinpoint when and why it is happening. Also are you using LMHOST files????

I agree that this is a client resolution problem. Is this on an IP network? If so, wins will not be of too much help because of the way Microsoft Products resolve a host name. If you are on TCP/IP I would implement a hosts file. This should fix the problem...
