Cannot authenticate to any domain resources

I have a windows 2003 domain with one server and XP sp2 clients. One machine (which shows as joined to the domain) is having problems. Roaming profiles cannot load and it cannot accessing shares (using a UNC path).. it prompts for credentials & password but then fails to authenticate. Also Mapped network drives do not work. The network connections are fine, DNS points to the domain controller. pinging the domain controller by name works. It seems to be an authentication problem. Other machines and roaming profiles all work fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Take the PC off the Domain and then rejoin it.

Oh, that doesn't sound good then.  I take it there are no network factors in the way such as a firewall or router?  If not, I'd say that a client rebuild is your next step. :-(

I thought that.. doh!

Nothing in the way.. no firewalls or routers.. network connection good.. it's like it's partially joined to the domain..!

I'll leave the question open for a little while in case someone has a suggestion..

Many thanks for your help, anyway..

You could try generating a new SID, there are lots of tools availble for that out there.  Then try joining with yet another new name and see how that goes.

I didn't get a chance to try a new SID.. the machine was a real mess.. so a wipe and rebuild was due anyway.. many thanks for your help..
