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

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.
