NT Net login Service won't start

By brat ·
The error message that I am receiving is referred to in TechNet, q234655, which states, "unable to log you on because the Netlogon service is not running." The fix is to install service pack 6a but I can not log onto the server to install the service pack. Steps to error message, the server locked up and I lost the boot record. Next, Modified the boot ini so repair could be preformed. Any suggestions? My next step is to replace the SAM file through a client on the network. I can not afford to loose any data on this machine!

1) Are you truly sure that q234655 is the cause of your problem?
2) Look in the Event Viewer for more clues as to why the NETLOGON service is not starting.
3) Go to the Control Panel, Services, and try and Stop and Start the Netlogon Service.

Maybe u can get on another NT server, and start the NetLogon service remotely by using server manager, or use event viewer from that NT server and look at the event log remotely. If you don't have any other NT station, install them on a win9x PC from the resource kit or NT Server CD and install NT server tools..

Otherwise, you can use the recovery tools found at www.winternals.com

Four ideas.

1. Problem could be a wrecked registry,and the system can't find the location of the services file is lost, goto REGEDIT.COM and download a copy of REGCLEAN.
if that doesn't work try this.

2. Since you've modified the boot ini, goahead and do the repair, login to the network and install sp6. or

3. Put your NT Workstaion cd in and do an upgrade (even though it's the same version).

4.Finally, install a new version of NT into a separate directory (DON'T FORMAT THE DRIVE)and attach to the network, download SP6. Now the choices are to work with it from there or delete the new install and work with the old install and apply the sp6 you downloaded.

By booting through your CD, you should get to Windows then apply the SP. Also, you can copy the system files to a diskette by booting off a WIN9x startup disk (I hope your system partition is not NTFS), and then copy the system files.

Good Luck!

Just two suggestions,

1)This error could be due to start of another PDC of this domain – if it is so, just stop this PDC (or its Net Logon service);
2)If the boot sector is lost you can try to fix it, using NT native tools (boot from CD orthe three disks, without recovering Registry, if you haven’t fresh copy).
Good luck
