problems with wireless conenctions and 1054, 15 errors
Posted on 2008-10-30
I have roughly 80 computers in my building that connect wirelessly. I have 6 wrt54g2 wap's placed around the building. I have MAN profiles that are used on these computers.
The problem I am running into is everyday I am getting 1054 and 15 errors from the XP machines.
Microsoft Product: Windows Operating System Version: 5.2 Event Source: Userenv Event ID: 1054
Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. (%1). Group Policy processing aborted.
Microsoft Product: Windows Operating System Version: 5.2 Event Source: autoenrollment Event ID: 15
Automatic certificate enrollment for %1 failed to contact the active directory (%2). %3 Enrollment will not be performed.
I know these are related to the wireless connection, but not all the computers have a problem. Some have the errors one day, then no errors the next.
If the wrt54g2 is the problem I need some recommendation on better models to get. The wireless just handles MAN profiles, Internet browsing, and one programs that writes to a db on the server.
I have no problems with the computers that are wired. And if I go to the computer that gave the error, they do receive the GPO and enroll in AD, but not on first boot up.
