Workstation will not remain authenticated to the server
Posted on 2006-11-19
A particular workstation is having issues staying connected to the Server. If you try to connect to the File Server, an error pops up saying,
"Server is not accesssible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network is not present or not started."
I then figured I would have to take the workstation off of the domain and then bring it back on the domain. I went to change the network to workgroup and saw the following:
The option to change the name of the workstation was no longer available. There was a note on the bottom that said, " Note: The identification of this computer cannot be changed because: Networking is not installed or not properly configured."
I then went into TCP/IP and changed the DNS to automatic and was prompted to restart. After the restart, I had access to the Server. It worked for a couple minutes and then connection broke off again. I then manually configured the DNS to point at the server, rebooted and then got connected again momentarily. I did this a couple times until I figured I would just try and switch to workgroup while I had a connection to the server. I finally changed from domain to workgroup and then back to domain.
Now the issue is happening again.
Does anyone know what I can do? I'm lost here.
