NETLOGON failure to authenticate
Posted on 1998-05-12
This problem(?) has plagued me for some time now.
Since installing an additional computer in my office (this one is NT 4 workstation), the NT Server (PDC) has been recording a NETLOGON error event every 5 mins. Keep in mind, I have no difficulties in logging in or accessing anything. The workstation event system log displays the following:
Failed to authenticate with \\MTA_INTERNET, a Windows NT domain controller for domain DIPIX.
On the NT 4 server:
The session setup from the computer SHAWN-NT failed to authenticate. The name of the account referenced in the security database is SHAWN-NT$. The following error occurred: Access is denied.
I cannot find any reference to SHAWN-NT$ on the NT server. What security db does it mean? Again, I have absolutely no access difficulties. Additionally, the NT system event log continues to generate these errors even when this NT workstation is shut down.
Just so you know....SP3 is installed. MS Tech people believe I may have a corrupted u db!! Wouldn't be the first time (different server, different environment, same flaky OS!).
