Users keep losing their authentication & network drives.
Posted on 2010-01-05
I have an office with about 40 users onsite and another 10 that are remoet via Citrix. It seems my users, at random times of the day, will lose their authentication on the network. They will lose access to a network drive and get a logon failure message. They will of course lose network printers that go through that same server.
If they try to connect using \\server\vol or \\server.domain.com\vol it will error out but if I try \\x.x.x.x\vol then it works. The clients are XP Pro and the servers are 2003.
I have been out of the SysAdmin role for years, having been doing networking so my AD & other M$ services are really rusty. I'm just now getting back into it and I have not been able to resolve this issue. I'd appreciate any help on this.
