Hi all,

I'm a network admin for a windows 2000 domain. Recently I have faced this weired problem: Some Windows 98 SE and NT 4.0 member servers cannot login into the domain. In windows 98 I receive the message "The domain password you suppllied is incorrect ...etc" although the message suggests that a bad user name or password were supplied it is not. The user name and password are correct.

In windows nt on the other hand, whenever i tried to login i receive the message that no domain controller were found and i'm login in using the cached account. And whenever i try to access a share located on that particular server i receive the error message: "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed"

any ideas

try using an lmhosts file on those problem boxes
use the #DOM and #PRE tags

Turn off WINS resolution and add the ip address of the domain controller to the lmhosts file.  If WINS fails the lmhost file is not checked. Not sure if this is a bug or a change in policy by Microsoft, but I solved it this way.
