The user profile service failed the logon error fix
We recently had an issue where a Domain Controller was giving us this error when we were trying to remote (RDP) on to it:
This will bring up a dialog box that should look like this:
From here you can click the Add button and then browse for the machines on your network that you want to reboot, in our case, the faulty Domain Controller. Then fill out the rest of the box and when you are ready, click the OK button.
This will send a remote shutdown/reboot command to the machines that you have added and reboot them immediately.
We did this and after a few minutes we tried to remote back on to the Domain Controller and there you go! all working again without any messing about with the registry edits! sometimes the simple “have you tried turning it off and on again” is the best!
