  • SBS2003 Clients have to reboot machine if left on over nite

    Hello

    Could some one tell me how to disable this function...? basically if any one of the client machines is left on over nite in the morning they are required to restart the machine and log back on, how does one disable this feature so users can leave their machines on overnite...

    Thanx you

    just to clarify....there isnt a message saying u need to restart, but basically in the morinin oif the machine was left on then when you try to access the server it promts you for a username and password asif you are no longer authorised.

    only thing you can do is restart your machine and log back on.

          i had a look at the link sent..and removed digital signing but this has helped.

          it seems to me it is happening not necissarily over nite. but if a computer si left on for a period of time 9 a few hours) if you come back to the machine to get acces to the server you are required to re authenticate. its treats u asif you are no longer aprt of the domain.

              Clarification: is this SBS2000 or SBS2003?
              And are the clients Windows 2000 or XP?
              TIA

                hi yes it is 2003 sbs and all windows XP clients.

                i removed all digital signing as suggested and rebbooted all machines including server 3 times.

                but if a client is left logged onto the server over nite or even just for a long period of time the client is asked to reauthenticate with the domain...most annoying. i have noticed sometimes its only with outlook, for example i mite go into outlook it will take longer to start up than usual and then will prompt me for the network password. if i dont respond to the prompt and quikly go to network neighbourhood i have found i can still get access to file shares on the server. so this it is confusing as to why i dont have permison to now logon to exchange.

                As said before most times it's when i leave the computer for a long time and then try to access a file share on the server. outlook is normally ok.

                one other trait i have noticed is when im prompted for the network password/username when startin outlook, if i ignore it dont authenticate and cancel out of startin outlook then resart outlook 9 times out of ten it will load perfectly fine the next time.

                    well at first i thought it was every 24hrs, because i only noticed it happening when i left the client logged on over nite.

                    but recently i have noticed if the computer is left unused for 3-4 hrs its locks out.

                    there is no exact set time that it locks out from what i can tell.

                      I knew I'd find it eventually. What about

                        Sounds to me like failure to renew the Kerberos ticket.
                        Even if the server drops the session, the client should be able to access the resource seamlessly, as long as it has a valid Kerberos ticket. A failure to renew it (Kerberos ticket lifetime by default is 10 hours) would result in the behavior described above.

                        Are the clients pointing to the SBS as theprimary DNS ?
                        are there any errors/warnings on he SBS box in the event log ?
