Windows 2000 Server keeps losing rights/permissions on the network

One of our servers(server A) runs an app used for document imaging.  It processes the images and then once a day it uploads all of the images to another server(server B), one we use for data storage.  Well a few weeks ago we changed the user account that it was using to run the app under.  We switched it to another domain admin account.  Tested it and everything worked fine.  But the next day when the application tried uploading files to server B, it failed.  After investigating, server A couldn't access any other server, and if I go into Manage and try to connect to another computer, the browser list was blank.  I logged out and logged back in and everything worked.  But after a day or so the same problem happens again.  I have spoke with the company that provides the document imaging software.  They have double checked everything area that required the user account info(services, SQL) all have been updated to use the new domain admin account.  I also have checked the local policy to verify that everything points to the new account.  I am really stumped on this one and appriciate all and any help. Thanks,

Frank

You might also try to run some AD diag tools from the Windows resource kit ( also on the MS site usually ).
Dsastat.exe: Active Directory Diagnostic Tool  Compares and detects differences between naming contexts on domain controllers.
Nltest.exe  Administers and tests domains and user accounts.

I hope this helps !

After digging further into this, I have noticed in the event log there is an error.  I am not sure if it is related but I think it may be.  The error is:
________________________________________________________________
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1000
Date:            10/22/2006
Time:            11:54:55 PM
User:            NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:      Server A
Description:
Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. Return value (1326).

Does anyone know what the cause of this may be or an idea about the solution?  Thanks.

Ok I have been doing some further testing and have found that this only affects one user account.  I have logged in an ran the application under a few other Domain admin accounts and it works perfectly. This only happens when logged in as administrator.  I don't know where to go from here.  Any ideas/suggestions are greatly appricated.  Thanks

Don't use that account, create a new one to run the app.

I hope this helps !
