  • logon problem windows 2000 server

    lately we encountered a problem in few of th workstations in our office

    for no reason after one of the workstation is turned off or restarted the alt+ctrl+del comes on

    with the correct user name & the correct domain group when we write the correct password

    it doesnt let us through saying : cannot logon & it gives several reasons like the server is down (which is not) or the password or user wrong ( which is not ) trying to re-enter brings the same

    reboot brings the same the only way i found to by pass this problem is to unplug the Lan network cable from the workstation and while the cable is out i can log in with my reguler password n user to the same group though i cannot enter the files but after i logged on once i can than plug back the cable & everything works great till the next time i shut down the computer

    any ideas ???

    Check the event logs on the machine and the DCs. Has the machine account been deleted or expired?

        Already checked and ? nothing there?
        Is there a firewall / av setup on the server? Have you checked your DNS records are correct, can you ping by name etc. Does DcDiag show all is ok with AD? Are all machines up to date with patches? If it works with the cable unplugged then it is using cached credentials to log on.
        Does it make any difference if you try taking one of the machines off and then back onto the domain?
        cheers

            If there is no errors, try rejoining it to the domain again.
