    Hi,

    If you try to login with domain user account for the first time, you must be connected to domain controller. if you are not you will get no logon server available.

    Once logged , user credential will be saved on cache , and next time you will able to login on offline.

  • check the DNS settings and the logon DC, Client subnet needs to be assigned to local site and local site should have a working DC

  • Is the network cable plugged in? I encounter this error when I don't have a network connection.


    Basically what Thameur Bourbita was saying.

  • Is the same issue with any user account ?

    Check DNS settings on your client OS (login using local account if you can't using a domain account).

    Can you ping the Gateway / DNS Server

    User credentials will be saved by default except if you have modified the GPO "Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options / Interactive logon: Number of previous logon to cache (in case domain controller is not available)".  By default is 25

    You are probably loging with cached credentials if your users, and you have no access to AD and DNS servers. When you login with cached credentials, you will not notice that until a new users logins or you want to access a share on server.

    Considering you user is not locked out (because Admin can not log in), you should firstly check if you have network access to your DNS servers. You can check this either by pinging the domain name or the IP address. I believe that DNS client setting on your computer is wrong and there might be another DNS server instead of local DNS server in TCP/IP properties.
