    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to install NoMachine on Windows 10 and the client is working fine, the server, not so much.

    When I try and install I get an error saying the nx user can’t be created (attached).

    I have no node.db file and when I try and restart from the command line I get the following.

    The system is

    I have attached nxdb

    Ta.

    Peter.

    Hi pnunn,

    We were not able to open the images in the topic thread and the nxdb file failed to attached.  Can you please send them directly to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com making sure you use the title of the topic in the subject of your email? Thanks!

    Hello pnunn

    Looks like you have a problem with creating a profile of user nx.
    There are 2 possible reason:

    1. Do you use domain users/LDAP/ActiveDirectory? Do you have non
    standard restrictions for users?

    2. It’s possible that default user profile on your host might be
    corrupted. You can try to create few user accounts and check if
    it’s possible to login on their desktops. If you experience any
    problems, please refer to this Stack Overflow thread:

    Thanks Zaq,

    This machine is a stand-alone Windows machine, no AD, no LDAP, not even a workgroup (everything else in the network uses a proper OS).

    Looks as though NoMachine is out then, I’m not creating new users just for this, unfortunately. Strange that nothing else I’ve installed has any issues that I know of.

    Thanks again.

    Peter.

    NoMachine server software needs nx user for its proper working. You can find more information here:

    https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/AR01N00871

    If you just need to connect from the Windows machine to another computer you can install nomachine-enterprise-client package. It doesn’t need nx user:

    To investigate the problem please pack a folder with logs:

    C:\ProgramData\NoMachine\var\log

    and send to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com.

    The problem is directly related to this command:

    net user nx “PASSWORD” /y /ADD

    Could you:

    1) Open cmd as Administrator – open Menu Start and just write cmd, then choose ‘Run as administrator’.

    2) Run this command:

    net user nx "YOUR_PASSWORD" /y /ADD

    3) Send the whole output from the command to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com please?

    I ran the command as directed… no output at all.

    Just returned to the command prompt.
