No domain server was able to validate your password.
Posted on 2006-03-27
We currently have 4 Windows 2000 Servers
1 2k AD Server
1 NT App Server
3 2k App Servers
2 Switches 100 / 1gb
On Friday, I enabled the secondary NIC card within each server. I did this so that the backup process can run on a f 1gb switch. The secondary NIC card of each server was configured and plugged in on a seperate switch.
On Saturday, I received calls from end users who are using Windows 95 that they are receiving:
No domain server was able to validate your password.." when trying to log in via Windows 95 workstation.
Assuming that I may have done something wrong on Friday, I disabled the secondary NIC of the AD Server this moring. Now the users appear that they can log in again.
I had no calls relating to Windows XP workstations. Can anyone offer assistance on why Windows 95 workstations have this issue? I think having the secondary NIC card enabled caused my problems. Did I not setup the secondary NIC card correctly.
Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
