  • Server Drops Computers From Domain At Random???

    Hope someone can help me on this one. Our domain is randomly droping our computers from our domain. Once that happens we have to change the computer names to get them put back on the Domain!! Any idea please help if ya can. Thanks!!

    You have to be more specific.
    What domain you have? nt4, w2k, w2k3
    Clients? win98, xp, w2k
    How do you know that your computer is out?
    Event log from domain controller, did you find anything?
    Activating the auditing on the domain controllers will help!

      The server is 2003. Workstations are XP. I get the message Trust between domain controller and workstation cannot be established. The event log isnt showing anything that would relate to the computers droping off!?

        Are you having this problem since when?
        Do you apply some kind of policy?
        Do you apply service packs?

          It started about a week ago. Every morning i come in and there are around 3-4 computers that have done it. Havent applied any security policies. (This is not the root ca) and im being told that none have been applied. Havent applied any service packs!

            Do you have CA's on the network?
            Do you have some kind of certificate to the computers?
            In the past something was changed because you are having problems!!!

              Did you check the server Event Viewer as well as the XP one?
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.
              1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
              2 2 1 1 2

                Thanks for all the help. Im still not 100% on what did it but i think i have traced it down. (Im over in Afghanistan right now) Someone higher then me has been playing with GP's. They have been screwing with Backgrounds and what not. Best thing i can figure out is all the computers that didnt get that update are the ones being kicked off. I guess!! Damn army. O well. Thanks for all the help!!
