Enabled Remote desktop on Windows XP SP1. Added the domain accounts to the allowed users list. Verified domain connectivity on the remote desktop host computer and client. When making the remote connection I get the host logon dialog box, put in domain user account information and get the following error:
"Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. If this message continues to appear, contact your system administrator for assistance."
I can connect using a local account. I did verify the computer account is valid and enabled in AD. I also am ablke to connect to other hosts with the same domain account information.

Any Ideas?

Thanks,
Damon Derossi

The host is a member of the domain and all domain services work fine when sitting at the console. The domain accounts work fine when logging onto the host console. The only time I get the error message is when trying to logon to the host machine via remote desktop.

Somehow the passwords got out of sync. I dis-joined and re-joined the domain and that fixed the problem.
Seeing as you were the only one to respond Sunray, I'll accept your solution.

Hello,

Our Exchange server crashed.  In an attempt to fix the issue, we rebooted our server.  
After the server came up, several users logged in and could only see new messages.  
All old messages were gone.  We tried rebooting a second time and logged into
our mailboxes and saw the same thing, just new messages but no old messages.

The priv.edb file is only 10MB and the pub.edb is 2GB.  We do have a backup that is
one month old with a priv.edb that is around 16GB.

My question for anyone is, what happened to the 16GB priv.edb file?  Would
Exchange recreate the priv.edb?

Based on what we saw, it looks like Exchange recreated the new priv.edb file because
we only saw new messages in our Inbox and the size of the priv.edb is only 10MB.

Anyone has any seen this before?

Thank you in advance,
Paula
