KB ID 0000712 Dtd 15/11/12


You see the following error in your event log (seen here in the system log on a domain controller).

Event ID 5719

Log Name: System Source: NETLOGON Date: 15/11/2012 06:00:35 Event ID: 5719 Task Category: None Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: Servername.Domain-Name.com Description: This computer was not able to set up a secure session with a domain controller in domain (domain-name) due to the following: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request. This may lead to authentication problems. Make sure that this computer is connected to the network. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator.


Note: In this case the domain it could not contact was NOT my live domain name it was a different domain name. If your error is referencing your live domain name then you have a different problem.

Cause: In my case the problem was being caused because I had a domain trust to a domain that was no longer contactable, (one of my colleagues has set it up in the past to do some testing). So I simply needed to remove the trust.

Warning: In this case that trust is no longer required – Check!

1. On a domain controller > Windows Key+R > domain.msc {enter}

2. Right click the domain name > Properties > Trusts > Select the problem domain > Remove > Yes > OK.

Remove Domain Trust
