We have a Windows Server 2008 r2, yestreday it updated and re-started. Now network users cannot re-connect to network drives until they are re-entered their username and password. This they have to do this each time they log back in. Why?

make sure that the machine points to itself as dns server. restart the netlogon service after you make the cahanges ( not user affecting since restart of netlogon service takes seconds

  ( or where are your domain dns hosted)

I presume the windows 2008 box is part of a domain?

I would verify the domain membership of the computer account, and potentailly unjoin and rejoin it to the domain. (use tools like NETDO VERIFY)

The AD does not see the Domain. This server is the only one in use so it cannot see iteself. Is it OK to do the NETDO VERIFY and rejoin?

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

It seems that AD has failed, "there are no logon servers available", any idea why this has happened after the updates and how can we fix it?

this typically means that the DNS for teh server is misconfigured, and cant locate a domain controller

make sure the DNS configuration of teh server is still correct ( should be pointing to the Active directory DNS zone)

so the machine itself the windows2008 machine is the domain controller?? on which file shares are there as well or where is the domain controller.

This is the PDC, all file shares are on the main Drive. Nothing unuslaul expect this all occured after updates.

All checks run indicated a problem with netlogon

As suggested I re-started this and that seem to have fixed it. Thanks
