NLTEST returning RPC_S_UNKNOWN_IF


Ran into a case today where NLTEST was returning RPC_S_UNKNOWN_IF.

C:\Users\Administrator>nltest /sc_query:bradforest
I_NetLogonControl failed: Status = 1717 0x6b5 RPC_S_UNKNOWN_IF

C:\Users\Administrator>nltest /sc_reset:bradforest
I_NetLogonControl failed: Status = 1717 0x6b5 RPC_S_UNKNOWN_IF

I cranked up netlogon logging but nothing appeared in the log which was strange.  I then checked the windows services that were running on the system and noticed that netlogon was stopped and set to manual.

That would explain it!

    1) Did you turn up netlogon debug logging? nltest /dbflag:2080FFFF

    2) How is your name resolution for your domain?

    3) Is the netlogon service running?

    I am having the same issue on a XPE with SP1 (installing sp2 did not fix the problem)

    Any solution found yet?

    Thx
