Name Service Provider Interface (NSPI) Proxy cannot contact any global catalogs that support the NSPI Service.

This Error event indicates that the Name Service Provider Interface (NSPI) Proxy cannot contact any global catalogs that support the NSPI service. New clients will be refused until a global catalog is available. A domain controller that was recently promoted to a global catalog may not have been restarted. A global catalog must be restarted for the NSPI interface to be available.

To resolve this error, do one or more of the following:

  • Check the general health of the global catalog servers

  • If you have recently promoted a domain controller to a global catalog server, verify that it has been restarted to support MAPI clients.

  • If you are having difficulty resolving the issue, contact Microsoft Product Support. For information about contacting support, visit the Contact Us page of the Microsoft Help and Support Web site.
