Loss of File share Connections / mapped drives
Posted on 2004-08-11
I've seen some related questions posted, but none have yielded a fix:
I'm running a Win2k3 memeber server in a flat domain. I don't have access to the DC and can't change any domain-wide policies. I control an OU for my office, with the member server and a dozen XP workstations. Login authentication is routed through kerberos servers.
I recently switched from an NT 4 domain to the 2003 OU set up, and now some of my workstations are dropping their connections to the shared file network drive for no apparent reason.
The server shows an event ID 529 - bad username and password with the NTLMSsp process, then locks out the workstations shortly after. I can reconnect after rebooting, but none of the fixes I've seen have stopped it from happening. I also have repeated 1048/1030 event ID's, stating that the GPO objects can't be reached and policy processing is aborted. I'm wondering if my access rights or permissions are mistaken, but I can't figure out where I might have erred. I'm hoping someone has an idea of what's behind these errors.
