I have a user and everyday around 16:30 and 17:30 they are unable to save any documents to the server.  now if i try and connect a mapped drive to the server it wont allow me to do this either.  but i can ping the server and my network connection is still working, but if i log of and log back in again then it seems ok.
i have checked the user account for logon hours but everything is the same as every other user but it seems that it is just this one account that is causing difficulity.

i am using xp pro SP2 with windows small business server 2003.

What errors do you get on the workstation.

USER Enroll ???

Is the DNS for the workstation pointing to the server ?
Do you have enough licences for the server ?
Is the workstation time set to sync with the server ?

Not getting any errors as such - just the fact that i am unable to do anything with the server.

Is the DNS for the workstation pointing to the server ?
Yes the DNS is pointing to the server

Do you have enough licences for the server ?
Yes we have 21 users with 25 licenses

Is the workstation time set to sync with the server ?
Yes double checked that myself

The reason I ask is that I had a similar problem a while back.

I had set the workstation to use the server dns correctly and use the server as its time server.

I kept getting USER ENROL and USER ENVIRO or something like that errors.

Bascially the server and workstation were having a daily conflict whilst all the other workstations
on the network that were all set up the sameway all worked fine.

I tried every thing to get it to work properly but found the only way was to detach the workstation
from the network i.e. join it to a workgroup only and then join it back to the domain again.

Everything worked fine from then on BIZARRE !

If you choose to try this be careful as you will loose the users desktop, favourites and their outlook pst files. So be sure to back these up first.
