Hi Experts.

I have recently setup this XP Pro PC on a Server 2000 network and I am able to join it to the domain with no problem. After a reboot and once I attempt to log back into the domain, its takes about 2 minutes to log back in and there are no errors at this time. The problem comes in when you try to access the data in the mapped drive.

It freezes up the 'my computer' screen, and the only way to get it to work on the network again is to remove it from the domain by joining it to a workgroup and then restarting it and then joining it back the domain.  Once it is functional on the domain, I am able to log off of that user and log back on with no problem. But if I restart this computer and try to access the data on the network drives it freezes up again.

I am changed out the network card, changed out the data cable, copied the user settings from a working active directory account, changed the motherboard battery.

Please let me know what you think the problem is and how I can fix it.

Thank you.

Leon.

what is your dns config? is the client pointing only to the server? are you running the newtork ID wizards?

The network card has been configured to static IP address , subnet and gateway, and it also has a static DNS address. ( I got this from the routers status page)
This computer has been setup for remote desktop.

I have tried to run the network ID wizard and it says that it can not find the users account on the domain.

After I get locked out I get this error after I try to access the mapped drive.

Any Ideas ?

As I requested, Post your DNS information for review - run IPCONFIG /ALL on the server and IPCONFIG /ALL on at least one client and post them here.

Hi Experts

I have figured out how to resolve this problem.

I Set the client PC up on a work group, and then mapped the drives to the server by \\server enter and connected the dives like that.

Problem is fixed, thankyou all the same.
