  • Computer accounts dropping from of AD

    Hi,

    We have 2 X Windows 2000 Servers as a DC's and a mixture of XP and 2000 clients. Just recently we are experiencing problems with computer accounts not appearing in AD. We connect a XP computer to the domain and it appears in AD for a week or two and people can use the computer. Then for some reason the computer cannot connect to the DC anymore and the account has disappeared from AD.

    Any suggestions as to why??

    Thanks

    Only the obvious one: somebody/something is removing them.

    I'd enable account management audits on the DC's, and look for corresponding events.

      Are you 100% sure you do not have replication issues ?
      Anything weir in DC's event logs ?

        do these computers whos accounts change retain the same name? also what happens if you use "find" and try to locate them, just to see if they were moved rather then deleted, this is a different problem, I would enable auditing and check event viewer for any thing suspcious. maybe if it keeps happening, audit the "everyone" group for all succesfull changes to AD see if someone is manually messing with objects that shouldn't be.
