Domain Logon Problems with Net Logon
Posted on 2004-10-29
Aye, major headache.
Here's some background:
We have a small server/client network, running Windows 2003 Small Business Server. Just got a new workstation that will be replace another, older one. The new one has Windows XP SP2, the old one had Windows 98SE. After updating Windows on the new workstation, I joined it to our domain with no problems. I put in the same log on info that the old computer has (the one to be replaced). Everything's working fine. The new user can log in and access all the networked drives, etc. So far, so good. The problem is that I cannot log in as any other user on the domain into this computer. But I need to do this because the designated user for this computer does not have sufficient privileges to install and remove programs, and I need to install the network version of Peachtree on this. If I log in as, say, the domain administrator, I get the following error: "Unable to log you on because the netlogon service is not running on this machine." I get this for ANY of the users we have on this domain except the one I used first (the user whose computer is being replaced by this one). Anyway, I logged in as a local Administrator and checked the Netlogon service in "Services." It is not running. So I turned it on manually and get this error: "Could not start the Net Logon service on local computer. Error 10106: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized."
Yikes! Now what?? I'm not very good when it comes to such advanced networking, though I know myself around Win XP pretty well. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
