Event log errors 1030 and 40961 on XP workstations
Posted on 2007-08-12
I have a Windows 2003 LAN with 11 2003 SP1 server and 50 XP Pro workstations at various patch levels. The problem is about 3/4 of the workstations are throwing Event 1030 and 40961 at regular intervals of about 90 minutes. None of the servers have this problem. I've tried to find a pattern but it's completly random as to which workstations have the errors and those that don't.
I have 2 AD 2003 servers, ADSERVER1 and ADSERVER2.
Here is the detailed error info:
Event ID: 40961
Category: SPNEGO (Negotiator)
The Security System could not establish a secured connection with the server firstname.lastname@example.org. No authentication protocol was available.
I also get this same error but pointing to ADSERVER1 on my network.
Event ID 1030
Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. A message that describes the reason for this was previously logged by the policy engine.
For some reason I keep thinking this is a DNS issue but my research seems to say otherwise. Anybody have any suggestions?
