can't ping the host name but can ping the ip
Posted on 2009-05-19
I am running a w2k server in native mode and yesterday we had a problem with access to the domain controller wasn't accepting any account log on's. We then did a restore from backups and was able to logon to the domain. This morning some users were able to logon but weren't able to access the main dc (server1) by typing in the address "\\server1" but are able to type in the ip address.
The event viewer has this under system
The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server host/server1.<domain>. The target name used was DNS/server1.<domain>. This indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server. Commonly, this is due to identically named machine accounts in the target realm (<domain>), and the client realm. Please contact your system administrator.
Although dc diag reported that everything was in sync with the other dc (server2) can't even log onto the users and computers.
I am in a bit of spot so any help or suggestion would be appreciated
