Windows : NetLogon Service Missing

Windows : NetLogon Service Missing

Encountered a machine today where the user was unable to connect to network printers. On further investiagtion users without cached credentials were unable to logon to the machine and received an error regarding the NetLogon service not running. After checking the netlogon service, it was infact missing!

To resolve this simply install ‘Client for Microsoft Networks’ from the LAN/Wireless network adapter configuration and reboot.
