Unable to lookup user names for display

Unable to lookup user names for display - I get this when trying to add a user into the ARL for a folder. At first I wasn't able to resolve the name without getting the error but now it at least resolves the name but then when you clcik OK to add it to the group it then flashes the error?

Are you looking up the user in your domain or locally? Change the destination where the system is looking from.

Yes. I'm on a 2000 Sdv Server in a domain that has two 2003 Servers running native. This server I'm speaking to is only a member server now. Here are the events when I try and do a look up.

Sometimes I get another error that says the server is not operational. THis started in the last week and is happening to this server only. I can add or change rights on either of the two 2003 servers. The servers have been running like this for about 4 months. We did just take out a server that had DNS for another subnet. Funny thing is you can browse NetHood and see any and all computers so it's getting to the AD? Right? would this be an LDAP issue?

Network Neighbourhood only shows you that NetBIOS over TCP/IP is working. It's not linked to DNS or AD so won't give you much information to go on.

Probably the easiest place to start is with the DNS Settings. What do you have it set to at the moment?

The server is presumably a full member of the domain?
