We restarted a domain controller and we encountered the following error

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

Issue

The server was rebooted into “safe mode” after the restart and we could no longer log on using our domain admin accounts or connect to the DC using the member servers.

Solution

Logon to the domain controller using the DSRM credentials

Start the System Configuration (msconfig) and navigate to Boot

Deselect ‘Safe boot’

Click on Apply

Restart the server and afterward you can logon to the domain controller and verify if the Domain Services are running

    • Hi Adam,

      I currently have no idea why this happened to me and is happening to you.
      I believe this could happen when the network card “forgets” the connection or something happened to it but thats a wild guess.
      Also no permenant fix at this moment as it should be one of those issues that occur very often.

      Kind regards,
      Maarten

  1. You are awesome mate, thank you for posting this fix

    Same thing happened to me today from updating a client’s server

    Spent a good 6 hours, trying to resolve include multiple reboots. Even had the wife there getting tired.

    Got home, searched online, found your blog, logged in and fixed that damn SERVER!!!

    You are a legend, thanks highly

    ….same thing happened 3 months ago but MS resolved the issue at a charge of $700 USD. They never told me how they fixed it either.
