Win98 Clients can't log in to W2000 Server
Posted on 2009-04-21
I have a Windows 2000 SBS Server using Active Directory. Yesterday we had a system crash that turned out to be a bad power supply. This caused minor corruption on both mirrored hard disks. We ran CHKDSK to from the repair console to allow the system to boot again.
Everything seems fine on the Windows XP workstations, but none of our Windows 98 workstations can log in to the network. The error message is that the network password is incorrect, but the same user-name / password will work on an XP station.
I have proved that the cabling and communication to the SBS Server is is good - I can browse the Internet from the w98 stations if I answer the login/password prompt from the proxy server (MS IAS) with the same user-name, password and domain name.
Any suggestions as to what to try next ?
