user cannot log on to server
Posted on 2006-11-29
I am absolutely stifled - I cannot log on to the SBS server from a computer.
I can ping the server and even managed to change the computer name from the client pc using the admin account.
I've since tried logging on to the domain and cannot with any user including admin account.
I get an error message 'windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. If this message continues to appear, contact your system administrator for assistance'
Have added the ip address of the SBS server to the lmhosts file and still no joy.
PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP URGENTLY.
I AM NOT IN TOMORROW AND THIS DIRECTOR HAS TO LOG ON IN THE MORNING...
(it's now 7:45pm UK time and I'd like to leave soon...ish)
