Hyper-V, Windows 2003 Server, Event ID 1054

  • System Notes: Dell PowerEdge 2950, Windows 2008 Server Standard x64

As I have continued my usage of Hyper-V on Windows 2008 Server, one of the hosted systems continued to receive the following error in the Application Log: “Event Type: Error, Event Source: Userenv, Event Category: None, Event ID: 1054, Description: Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. (An unexpected network error occurred.). Group Policy processing aborted.” See the posting on 8/15/2008 for some additional details and a previous discussion of this.

It turns out that this only occurs on a hosted system configured for multiple processors and running Windows 2003 Server (same with R2). I verified this across my hosted systems. The solution is to use the /usepmtimer option on the system startup command in the BOOT.INI file. A discussion of this problem can be found here, and this link is to the Microsoft Help and Support article on the /usepmtimer option.
