Solved NT4 workstation on 2008 R2 domain, register DNS problem?

May 29, 2012 at 08:00:24
Specs: Windows 64, 2.812 GHz / 2047 MB
Having a bit of a problem getting an NT 4 workstation to see the 2008 R2 domain.

Event log on the NT 4 workstation logs:
Eventid: 5719, netlogon - No windows NT domain controller is available for domain <DOMAIN1> The system cannot find message for message number 0x%1 in message file %2.

Also noticed that although it is getting allocated an IP number correctly by DHCP it's name does not seem to be registered in DNS.

Any possibility this be in caused by a upper/lower case issue in the domain name, the actual domain is called Domain1.local whereas the NT 4 machine is looking for DOMAIN1.

Found answer for anyone following this thread:

Computer config -> Policies -> Administrative templates –> System –> Netlogon:
Enable: Allow cryptography algorithms compatible with windows NT 4.0

Have you installed the Active Directory Client Extension on the workstation? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288358

About the most correct answer is to get rid of the NT system. There a way as I recall to get this to work on 2003 server but it required you to relax some security issues. The second best way is to create a trust between a NT domain and the 2008 domain.

Be sure that the client is properly configured to use the DNS server. With NT4 domains DNS was optional but that is not the case with Active Directory. It is essential.

An NT4 workstation does not have the ability to register it's own IP address with the DNS server. However, a compatible DHCP server can be configured to do this.

Active Directory Client Extension now installed on the workstation but made no difference, same error:
Eventid: 5719, netlogon - No windows NT domain controller is available for domain <DOMAIN1> The system cannot find message for message number 0x%1 in message file %2.

However, DNS problems now fixed by adding a Reverse Lookup Zone, Server DNS now sees correct IP for this workstation.

Thanks for coming back and posting the fix Nick_C, I'm sure it will help somebody else in the future.

I am the captain of my soul.
