NETLOGON failure to  authenticate

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:
Event ID:3210
Failed to authenticate with \\MTA_INTERNET, a Windows NT domain controller for domain DIPIX.

On the NT 4 server:
Event ID:5722
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!).

TIA!!

Try to remove workstation from domain through ServerManager on domain controller. On workstation move it to workgroup (in Network Neighbor properties) reboot and add workstation to domain with creating of computer account in domain.

You've got a synchronization problem.

Have you tried to use the following DOS-command line from the PDC?

c:\> NET CONFIG SERVER

or perhaps

c:\> NET ACCOUNTS /SYNC


Anyway , there could be other reasons, like the MS Techs told you.

Who decided on accepting the answer??  
I certainly did not!
The correct answer actually came from WK rather than HKP (good idea but not correct).

Thank you WK for the correct solution and thanks to HKP for trying.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

You have had your chance to make complaints about the answer. I will gladly offer my contribution to get the right answer.

This is an automatic solution.

But, you can get the points, and give them to WK. Just tell Linda that I don't want the points, I can live without them.
