When you start a server running Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Event Viewer may record the following event:

Netlogon Event ID 5719:
No Windows NT Domain Controller is available for domain <domain_name>.
The following error occurred:
This event is expected and can be ignored when booting with the No Network Hardware Profile.

After the server logs this event at startup, you can log on to the domain normally. The event only occurs when you start the computer.


This behavior can occur when your server is connected to a switch that has the spanning tree "portfast" setting disabled.


To work around this behavior, enable the spanning tree "portfast" setting on the switch. For information about the proper use of the spanning tree "portfast" setting, consult the documentation provided with the switch.
