Cannot log onto Domain - domain is down or user account not found
Posted on 2006-04-05
we have an XP laptop user that gets the following error when logging onto our 2003 server domain. : WINDOWS CANNOT CONNECT TO THE DOMAIN EITHER BEACUASE THE DOMAIN IS DOWN OR BECAUSE YOUR COMPUTER ACCOUNT WAS NOT FOUND
The user can get on if he logs on in cached mode with the network unplugged and then re-connects his network cable. All files and email are then avalable.
The user also lost all his offline files yesterday when out of the office, we use GPO to re direct 'My Documents' to a private drive which we make available off-line.
I am not sure if this is a computer account error or a user account error so I have not removed from the domain yet.
Any assistance will be much appeciated.
