I'm getting an error in the Event Viewer, which is also generating a lot of Logon Failure messages on our syslog server. Pretty much stuck on how to resolve.
EventID: 536 Logon Type: 3 Reason: The NetLogon component is not active
This is for a Windows Server 2003 system. I have checked here
We're using Shavlik Protect 9 to scan and deploy patches. Shavlik stores the credentials for the systems and uses those stored credentials to deploy patches. This system is able to scan and deploy to other systems on the network using those credentials and no errors are generated. When installing to the local system that Shavlik is physically on then this error is generated. Whats interesting is that it doesn't generate during a scan, and the patches install fine.
We've contacted Shavlik to get the response that they are unable to help since it's a Microsoft error. Has anyone seen this?
