When you attempt to reset the secure channel by using the NetBIOS name of the domain controller, the Nltest tool (Nltest.exe) does not work with the following syntax:
nltest /sc_query:domainname[\Dcname]In addition, the following error message is displayed:
You can reset the secure channel by using the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the domain controller. This prevents the ability to reset a secure channel to Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 domain controllers.
I_netlogonControl Failed: Status=1311 0x51f ERROR_NO_LOGON_SERVERS
When you reset the secure channel, Windows 2000 only checks the FQDN of the domain controller and not the NetBIOS name.
