Hi people, I have a problem and I need so much of your help.

I have a login script in \\server1\netlogon\script.bat (on my PDC and BDC)
that runs "net use" commands to map some shares in time of the logon.
This login tries to map share in another server (samba member of domain

So, I put the result at a log and appears these lines:
System error 1311 has occurred.
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

This is a recurrent problem, but neither always this happens. Sometimes,
everything is wonderful and works very well mapping all shares, but is


Windows clients have this problem regardless of the type of PDC/BDC you have 
(Windows or Samba). The problem is that Windows is generally ready to let 
people log in before all of the network services are ready and as such 
people can't log in.

Are your servers on static IPs? Also, what kind of DNS/DHCP server do you 

This will help in troubleshooting.
