    No logon server available

    Locked

    by pikikoko ·

    I need help. I would like to correct this error message and also understand what is causing this problem.
    Server = w2k; computers 1,2 have w2k and computer#3 has XP. Computers 1 & 2 have intel 850gbl motherboards with P4 and computer 3 is laptor. server has STL2 board.
    connection is via a 10/100 hub. Computer1&2 can ping server. Computer #3 and server can ping each other and share files.If server pings computer 1&2 I get timed out. Computer 1&2 can ping server. Ipconfig/all reports all similar except Node Type is Hybird for server & xp computer while computer 1 & 2 have broadcast node types. Problem from server I cannot connect to computer 1 & 2 to share files.
    When I click on them I get “no logon server available”.
    I need a step by step solution and a conceptual understanding of what I did wrong.Network is my lab network which I built to learn about w2k networking. I can’t find any information in books about No Logon Server and how to test to see if network is set up correctly. Ican’t find any ipconfig command that will show up the problem. I have loaded active directory a few times I have unplugged all connections and same error message keeps comming up. IP is static.Dns is working.

      In my experience that error message only appears when the machine in question can’t find an IP for the Domain controllers (normally caused by an uncontactable WINS server).

      With an NT based domain WINS would store a list of the IPs for the domaincontrollers based domain.

      The node type you have is for name resolution, so Hybrid mode will look in WINS first, Broadcast will look for network broadcasts first.

      Do you have DHCP on the network? This should be giving out addresses for DNS, WINS, etc. The DHCP server can also set the Node type for the client machines (normally Hybrid or 0x8).

      Can you ping each machine from the others by IP adddress? If not then it could suggest a hardware / cable failure.

        Problems was solved. My hub was old and not working very well and I had a virus protection blocking the ping.exe
        Thanks
