Cannot log on the domain

hello,

I have setup a windows 2003 entreprise server domain controller. I have added another windows 2003 entreprise server as a member server to this domain. When i try to log on the domain with any user account it says - The system could not log you on. Make sure that you typed the username and password correct ..... blah...

Only one user account can log on the domain and it is the one that i used to join the second server to the domain. With other accounts i can log on to the domain controller at the console , no problem. But i cannot log with other accounts from this member server to the domain.

Please help!!

First thing to check on new server: Network such as DNS.
Use internal DNS (not ISP)

Have you tried using explicit credentials for the username on the member server?  e.g.  domainname\username   or   username@domainname  (after you check the DNS...).

Yes either a DNS issue or, I know it sounds elementary, but are you logging in to the right domain? After you join a domain it does not become your default choice until you select it... Unless you select it you are logging into the local computer and not the domain...

Do those other accounts have approriate rights to log onto your member server?

In the local security policy of the server, grant the log on locally right to the account you are trying to use

Sometimes the server does not join correctly and you have to go into active directory and right click the server and reset the account to give it a new security identifier.  What is the message?  If that doesnt work join a workgroup and then rejoin the domain, deleting the computer from active directory before rejoining.

Hello,

Thank you to all of you for the suggestions.  I figured the problem out, it was really basic and simple. I use a KVM console switch to access the different machines attached so i use the same keyboard. Also all the passwords are complicated with @ symbol included. And they keyboard and local settings were different on the DC and the member server. That is the keyboard  and local setting were set to UK on DC and were set to US on the member server.

So essentially i had been typing the wrong password on the member server. Thanks again for everyones contribution.

Regards
