Problem : Event ID 5723 need to remove netlogon entries
There are 2 machines on the domain that cause Netlogon errors. The Event IDs are 5805 and 5723. Example is below:
5805: The session setup from the computer 06XP301 failed to authenticate. The following error occurred:
Access is denied.
5723: The session setup from computer ’06XP301′ failed because the security database does not contain a trust account ’06XP301$’ referenced by the specified computer.
The problem is these computers do not exist in the AD structure. What’s more, I can resolve the computer name to an IP address, but cannot reach that address. These computers have been acting this way for 3+months.
How can I resolve these Netlogon errors if the computers in question are no long online? Do I need to make a change to the Active Directory?
Solution: Event ID 5723 need to remove netlogon entries
Go to your DNS server and delete those host records! Do an ipconfig/flushdns on the DNS server after that.
On any machine you are testing you will need to reboot or do an ipconfig/flushdns.
If those records were there your problem will fade away as the DNS is propagated throughout the Domain.
