Unable to access netlogon share from another DC

    We're currently using Scriptlogic to run our login scripts; in order to
    replicate, it requires the DC where it's running to copy files to the
    Netlogon shares on the other DC's in the domain. Script replication has been
    failing because the Scriptlogic host DC cannot browse to the netlogon shares
    on any other DC.

    The SL host DC can ping every other DC, and AD replication from that DC
    shows no failures to any other DC. Also, the other DC's can access the
    Netlogon share on the SL host DC It's just accessing the Netlogon shares
    from that DC that's causing the problem. Any ideas what the problem could be?

  2. Hello Tim,

    I do not know anything about Scriplogic, but if you have acces problems between
    your DC's, run dcdiag and netdiag on all DC's and check for errors.

    Best regards

    Thanks for your response! Scriptlogic is using a Domain Admin account to
    access the netlogon shares. When I try to browse to the share I get prompted
    to provide admin credentials and, when I type them in, it doesn't recognize
    them; in other words, the logon dialog box keeps popping up as if the ID or
    password were typed in incorrectly, but the account doesn't lock out no
    matter how many times I try, and there are no login failure events in the
    security logs on the destination DC's.

    We use ScriptLogic because it's easier to manage and edit the login scripts
    from it than from what would definitely be a huge batch file.

    A little additional information. It turns out that the source DC is unable
    to browse to the C$ hidden share on any of the other DC's either.
