We changed the administrator password on Friday. Both the domain administrator and the local administrator password. Since then we are having a couple of issues.
All our intranet pages are asking for an ID and password.
Also, for evry 5 minutes or so, or IIS is brining up the message " The connection to the server 'myPCNAME' was lost. Do you want to attempt to reconnect?". Could you someone please help on what the issue can be. I checked the eventlog. I didnt see anything related to the above messages. Thanks a lot.
