there are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request

Hello All,

I am having a serious problem with our Servers, We run an On-Premise virtualization (VMware Vsphere). All our servers are hosted virtually on VMware Vsphere, this past Monday we had a power outage that led to the abrupt shutdown of all our servers, Power has been restored the same Monday, and the host server (VMware) started successfully. All the servers on the VM boot successfully, but now I cannot log in to the Domain Controller (Active Directory Server), I am getting an error message "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request".

Please any idea on how to resolve this?

    Hello Jonah,

    try shutting down all your VMs and bring up your PDC first.

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >C:\dcdiag.log (run on PDC emulator)
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt (run on any domain controller)
    ipconfig /all > C:\%computername%.txt (run on EVERY domain controller)
    ipconfig /all > C:\problemworkstation.txt (run on problem pc)

    Also check the domain controller System and Replication (DFS or FRS) event logs for errors since last boot. Post the Event Source and Event IDs of any found. (no evtx files)

    then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.

    tried logging into the local administrator account

    There are no local accounts on a domain controller. Might try F8 at startup and choose DSRM mode to see what might have happened.
