When you try to log on to a domain from a Windows 2000-based Remote Access Services (RAS) client by using Dial-Up Networking, you are logged on with cached credentials. This problem may result in logon scripts that do not run, and also may prevent access to group policies, roaming profiles, and home folders.

The following event may also be logged in the System event log:
Event ID 5719
No Windows NT or Windows 2000 domain controller is available for domain {domain name} the following error occurred: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
This problem occurs only if the client is configured to use p-node or m-node for NetBIOS name resolution. This node type may have been set manually, or through a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) lease that sets DHCP option 46.
This problem is a result of a timing issue that prevents the RAS client from locating a logon server.
