Please revisit MRxSmb 3044 errors
Posted on 2008-06-24
I have seen different varieties of this same problem posted on E-E, but none that would pertain to my situation. I have a very basic network with one server operating Server 2000 and five client computers with XP Pro. I have one local domain with DHCP configured. Just recently I have been getting bombarded with MRxSmb 3044 errors with an error code of 80090322 pointing to SEC_E_WRONG_PRINCIPAL. My research shows that "this code indicates that the client tried to connect to the server with a computer name that is different from the actual computer name of the server."
Through a process of elimination I have isolated one client machine that is instigating the error messages. This computer is 6 months old and its configuration has not changed since it was installed.
Is the problem with the server, or with the client?
Any suggestions would be helpful
