2 out of 10 networked computers exhibit this behavior. Using Windows 2003 domain network (all patches applied). All virus scanners report no problems with server or clients. These 2 problem computers can search C Drive without problem. I've done many tests to insure problem is not network-wire related. Server is not providing dhcp or dns, as Sonicwall TZ180 is doing this.
Event log has several errors which I believe are related:
Event 1053. Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. (The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. ). Group Policy processing aborted.
Event 15. Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed to contact the active directory (0x8007054b). The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Enrollment will not be performed.
Event 1000. Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.5512, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.5755, fault address 0x00028c0b.
Event 1001. Fault bucket 223121472.
Event 5719. No Domain Controller is available for domain SMITHKRANTZ due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request. .
Make sure that the computer is connected to the network and try again. If the problem persists, please contact your domain administrator.
Also, 2 problem computers patched with XP Service Release 3.
Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
