Logon being denied...sometimes

Posted on 2004-04-01

When a user, who is not an administrator, tries logging on the error, "The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively" displays.  I've tried all the different fixes from the Microsoft website but that doesn't seem to matter.  Here's the catch though, roughly every other day or so the users can log on.  Is it possible that the two domain controllers that are running on the domain could be pulling their weight back and forth? This is on a 2000 domain.  

Thanks

I've tried each of those solutions.  I've made sure nothing is in the deny locally and I included, everyone, users and authenticated users into the log on locally.  That was on the main domain controller.  There is one other that I do not run.  Could that at all take precedence every now and then?  Because today, the users can log on.  Yesterday they received that error.  The day before they could log on.  That's the sort of pattern I'm seeing.

What do you mean by the statement, "There is one other that I do not run"?  Basic troubleshooting (elminate unecessary variables):  If you suspect that there is a conflict between your 2 dc's (which is all bad if they're not keeping their gpo's, users, computers, etc. synched), turn one off and just run with the other for a few days to see if the problem goes away or becomes permanent.  If it's the latter, turn that one off and run with the other for a few days.  If the problems continue to be intermittent, you've ruled out one variable.  If one of them fixes the problem, rebuild the other dc.

Good thinking.  I think you may be right.  I noticed buried in the events an error that the two DC's were not synching properly and that has been corrected.  Haven't seen the logon error for a couple days so that may have been the issue.  I'll see how it fairs over the next couple days.

thanks
