Can't log into NT domain.

Hello,
Here we have Windows95 workstations and NT server.  Windows95 PCs are configured to log into NT domain(not workgroup).  I am 100% sure that I spell out the domain correctly in Windows95 network configuration.
Starting from today, nobody can log into NT domain, except domain admin.  The error message is
"The domain password you supplied is not correct, or access to your logon server has been denied."  But nothing has been changed at the server or workstations.
Could you please help?

Did you check your user manager to make sure your users are still listed? Where did you login as an admin? Was it the same workstation where users cannot log in? Also check your hubs or switches and make sure the powers are on.  Meantime give me more info.

CyberNerd,
Thanks.  Users are still listed and valid.  It was the same workstation where users can't log in but domain admins.  Hubs are functional.
The problem is that only domain admins can log into the domain from any Windows95 workstations, not other users(who can log into the server locally).
It's not hardware problem, I believe.  Maybe I am wrong but I think it's somewhere at the server when authenticate login users.

In the user manager, check each user to be sure the account is not locked out and that passwords have not all expired.

check what everyone else said first as this problem is very vague...
also in the control panel... check services to make sure the authentication service is running.

if not.. click on it and click start...
also check the event log to see if there is anything listed that might explain why.

Please run Winipcfg /all on one or two machines and post the results.

By the way, ViRoy's "Non Answer" has this question locked.  You should reject it so the question can be seen by more people.  You will have a better chance of getting a real answer that way.

The authentication service is running because a domain admin is authenticated when he logs in.
Thanks anyway.

Verify that the "Access this
computer from network" has not been disabled for "everyone".

On the Server.....
1. Log on as Administrator.
2. From the Administrative Tools window, choose the User Manager icon.
3. From the Policies menu, choose User Rights.
4. Select "Access this Computer From Network" from the right dialog box.

If "Everyone" is not listed here....

5. Choose the Add button.
6. In the Grant To dialog box, select the Everyone check box.

TomSlick,
"Everyone" is not disabled.
"Access this computer From Network" is granted to everyone.
Any other suggestions, please?

Are all users part of the "Domain users" group.
Check the logon restrictions.

For a test add one of your users to the "administrators" group and post the results.

Take a look at you licenses on the server.  I will bet they have expired!
You may need to put then in again.  If you need me to walk you through just email me kind4me@aol.com but I am on the road (yea y2k compyance) for about another week or so, my responce may not be cery quick but I will respond. and if it is the license just let me know so I can "answer" this question and get the points.  Thanks

Hope this helps
as always

Remove all the network configuration from your win95 machine and reinstall. I think that will fix your problem.

nO.1 TRY TO PING TO THE NT SERVER..



iF U CAN PING
THEN CHECK AT THE SERVER WHETHER U HAVE
GRANTED HIM THE ACCESS OR NOT.

IF U HAVE, THEN CHECK YOUR NETWORK SETUP AT THE LOCAL WORKSTATION WHETHER THE WORKGROUP NAME CORRECT OR NOT ?
