LKBEN10651: More Netlogon information then just the eventviewer (eventvwr) with the logfile


You need some more troubleshooting methods for the domain logon


Windows writes a netlogon.log under %systemroot%\debug


When you need more information about clients with netlogon problems you should check the file %systemroot%\debug\netlogon.log. This file lists special problems with network clients. A few lines out of the log can be seen here:

12/07 14:17:51 NO_CLIENT_SITE: HHPC01
12/07 14:22:48 NO_CLIENT_SITE: HHPC01
12/07 14:35:42 NO_CLIENT_SITE: HHSRV02

In this case you can see that some pc's and even some servers have no site specification in active directory.
