NetLogon Service Entries
The Registry path for the parameters for the NetLogon service is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon \Parameters DBFlags REG_DWORD This is parameter used to debug the NetLogon service. This parameter is used only if the NETLOGON.DLL is checked binary. When this flag is set and the NETLOGON.DLL is checked binary, the NetLogon service logs debug information in NETLOGON.LOG file under the NETLOGON share directory. Each bit of this debug flag is used to log debug information for a subcomponent of NetLogon. For the following assigned bits, the most significant 16 bits of the flag are more verbose, and the least significant 16 bits are less verbose. Constant Value Meaning NL_INIT 0x00000001 Initialization NL_MISC 0x00000002 Miscellaneous debug NL_LOGON 0x00000004 Logon processing NL_SYNC 0x00000008 Synchronization and replication NL_MAILSLOT 0x00000010 Mailslot messages NL_CRITICAL 0x00000100 Only important errors NL_SESSION_ 0x00000200 Trusted Domain maintenance SETUP NL_PACK 0x00000800 Pack/Unpack of sync messages NL_WAN 0x00001000 WAN support NL_CHANGELOG 0x00002000 Change Log references NL_PACK_ 0x01000000 Verbose Pack/Unpack VERBOSE NL_MAILSLOT_ 0x02000000 Verbose Mailslot messages TEXT NL_CHALLENGE_ 0x04000000 Challenge response debug RES NL_NETLIB 0x08000000 NetLogon portion of Netlib NL_REPL_TIME 0x00100000 Replication timing output NL_REPL_OBJ_ 0x00200000 Replication objects get/set timing TIME output NL_ENCRYPT 0x00400000 Debug encrypt and decrypt across net NL_SYNC_MORE 0x00800000 Additional replication DbgPrint NOTE: The NETLOGON share name should also be in the path for logon scripts. PulseInterval REG_DWORD 60 to 3600 seconds Specifies how long a domain controller waits before sending each update notice to Windows NT Advanced Servers. When this value is not specified in the Registry, NetLogon determines optimal values depending on the domain controller's load. Default: 300 Randomize REG_DWORD 15 to 120 seconds Specifies the amount of time a Windows NT Advanced Server domain controller uses to stagger requests sent to the domain controller. This value is used by every server in the domain. When the domain controller sends update message to the servers, it includes the Randomize value in the message. The servers receiving that message will wait a maximum of that many seconds before responding to that message. When this value is not specified in the Registry, NetLogon determines optimal values depending on the domain controller's load. Default: 30 Scripts REG_SZ Pathname Specifies the fully qualified path name to where logon scripts reside. This value can be set using the Services icon in Control Panel or the Server Manager. Default: NULL Update REG_SZ Yes or No When this value is set to Yes, NetLogon fully synchronizes the database each time it starts. Default: No
NetworkProvider Service Entries
If more than one network is present under Windows NT, each network has a Services subkey that include a value for Group of NetworkProvider plus its own subkey named NetworkProvider, under the following Registry path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet \Services\Service or Driver Key Name\NetworkProvider The following entry values should appear under the NetworkProvider subkey for each network the computer can use: ProviderName REG_SZ Name Specifies the name of the Provider, which is displayed as the network name in Browse dialog boxes. This name is defined by the network vendor, and is usually some variation of the product name. Default: Defined by network vendor ProviderPath REG_SZ DLL pathname Specifies the full path of the DLL that implements the network provider. Default: Defined by network vendor The following value entries are present if the provider supports the Windows NT credential manager functions: Class REG_DWORD Class name Identifies the class (or type) of provider functionality that the provider supports. Valid values are: Constant Hexadecimal Value --------------------------------------------- WN_NETWORK_CLASS 0x00000001 WN_CREDENTIAL_CLASS 0x00000002 WN_PRIMARY_AUTHENT_CLAS 0x00000004 These values may be connected with OR statements where appropriate. AuthentProviderPath REG_DWORD DLL pathname Identifies the path and filename for the DLL that exports the credential manager API functions. This value is only useful if the provider is identified as being a CREDENTIAL_CLASS or PRIMARY_AUTHENT_CLASS provider, when the developer has chosen to package the network functions and credential manager functions in separate DLLs. The NetworkProvider subkey under CurrentControlSet\Control provides a list of the available network providers.
