The Question is:
Our Advanced Server V7.2A running under OpenVMS 7.2-1 as a BDC seam to lose the
NETLOGON service after some time (weeks or months) running. It is not possible
to restart the service.
The following error is generated:
GALLUP_DENMARK\\ADVSRV> start service netlogon
%PWRK-I-SVCOPWAIT, attempting to start the "NETLOGON" service on "ADVSRV"
%PWRK-E-SVCOPFAILED, start of service "NETLOGON" on "ADVSRV" failed
-LM-E-SVCFAILAUTH, service failed to authenticate with primary domain controller
The failure to start the Netlogon service result in the Advanced server not
being able to syncronise the SAM database with the rest of the domain. This
result in users not being able to logon to the Advanced Server after changing
password in the domain.
Only a reinstallation of Advanced server have solved the problem, when in
happened before. But then all shares have to be recreated again. A big job.
Is there any solution to this problem?
Is there a patch that fix this problem?
Is it possible to save the share setup before reinstallation?
When the Advanced Server V7.3 become available, can I still use my current
license for V7.2
