Windows could not start the Net logon service on the Local computer.Error 10044: The support for the specified socket types doesn’t exist in the address family.

We checked the event viewer and found the event ID 5737, 7036 and 7036 in reference to Netlogon

Netlogon Event ID 5737 – The support for the specified socket type does not exist in this address family

Event ID: 7023
   Source: Service Control Manager

Type: Error

Description: Netlogon service terminated with the following error
   message: Access Denied.


After troubleshooting we figured some of the registry entry from WinSock were missing from the server. We imported the following two Winsock keys from a working server and performed a winsock reset to resolve the issue.



After this opened a command prompt (Run as Admin) and performed a WinSock Reset

Netsh winsock reset

Rebooted the server and the service came backup just fine.
