Cannot Resolve NetBIOS Name of Remote Domain Controller

Article ID: 247918

Article Last Modified on 11/1/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q247918

SYMPTOMS

When you attempt to connect to a specific server in a Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0-based resource domain, the connection may not succeed and you may receive the following error message:

Login server cannot be found

There are no static entries in your Lmhosts file. When you view the local network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) name cache on the computer, a 1C (domain controller) entry appears for the resource domain.

CAUSE

This issue can occur when the local NetBIOS name cache is corrupted.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this behavior, use the Nbtstat -R command to purge the local name cache. The computer uses Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) to obtain the 1C name of the domain controller.
