SBS2000 + XP telling me computers are offline
Posted on 2003-10-30
I have a Small Business Server 2000 with 20 Windows XP clients.
Everyday a couple of the clients (randomly selected) show a small icon in the system tray telling me they are offline and also when login is done they say that the server can't be found so the roaming profile won't be loaded.
Oddly enough Outlook can connect to the exchange server, IE can browse the web and most other things work too. But the server shares are not showing all files, only some, and printing is not possible.
All of a sudden the computers randomly get online again and everything works fine again...
Has anyone seen this before, and does anyone have a solution?
