I was getting the "At least one service failed to start. Look at Event Viewer etc...." when the BDCs in my implementation would start up. I have NT Logon Discovery turned on. On boot SMS NT Logon Discovery Agents are attempting to logon to the network before the Netlogon Service starts. Event Viewer is showing this service as not having logon access. But NT service manager shows its status as started. I had to make this SMS service dependant on Netlogon. To do this SMSDiscFix.reg sets HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SMS_NT_LOGON_DISCOVERY_AGENT dependant on Net Logon. Dana Daugherty offers this fix to force the NT Logon Discovery Agent to wait for the Net Logon service to start.
Simply run this registry edit on any server that is experiencing the problem.
If you are suspicious of any .reg file simply right click on it and select EDIT in order to see what it is going to do.
