Hi there,

Ok, got a wee problem here.

Had a domain controller at a site which users logged onto. I had to dcpromo the server to a member server. i also updated the ad site and services. Now the users cannot authenticate. Whenever i try to map a drive to the local member server it prompts for the username and password and cannot authenticate the user.

Can ping DC's and DNS is ok.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Who is running DNS for the site where you removed the DC?

Hi There,

Yip, solved this Friday night. Dns was still pointing at the Demoted DC!! Updated records, everything fine now. Silly mistake, but easy to solve!

You can have the points anyway.

Cheers.
