Network computers randomly lose connection to Domain
Posted on 2008-10-29
here is the scenario-
Windows 2000 domain running AD with DNS running and DHCP installed on a different machine
Client machines are running XP
Randomly machines (at last count was about 6 out of 50ish machines) won't recognize the domain, so users can't get to network shares or internet or if they do it is incredibly slow.
it is not the user accts, when I have the user log onto a different machine they dont have the same issues.
some things I have already tried to do without sucsess
resetting machine account in AD
remove machines from domain and readd them
uninstalling MS client for networks and reinstalling
deleted one of the machine accounts from AD and then putting this machine into a workgroup, changing the computer name, then readding to the network with the new name.
none of these have solved my problems. All but one of the machines are on DHCP, there is one with a static IP address that is also having the same issue so I dont think its a DHCP issue.
the DC is not giving me much as far as error messages but there is one for the machine I tried the renaming scenario on
The description for Event ID ( 5790 ) in Source ( NETLOGON ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following information is part of the event: JENNAOPTI, Access is denied. Also
The session setup from the computer JENNAOPTI failed because there is no trust account in the security database for this computer. The name of the account referenced in the security database is JENNAOPTI$.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
