First time poster. I have read at least a dozen other posts about similar issues but nothing really describes my issue exactly. And none of those solutions have worked. So here goes:
Came into work today and I hear 3 people are having some odd issue. I check it out: they cannot get to mapped drives. When they try an error message comes up: Target account name is incorrect. At first I paniced and thought the server was down.
It is not and 30 other people have no problem.
After spending a lot of time poking around my main DC/File Server I log into our Exchange server.
Environment: File server, the DC (server1). One Exchange server (server2). One Dev server. All 2003 - Standard)
In the Exchange logs I get these every minute:
Computer: Mail Server
Category: LDAP Operations
Event id: 8026
Description: LDAP bind was unsuccessful on directory SERVER1.DOMAIN.LOCAL for distinguished name ". Directory returned error: [0x52] Local Error. DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
Everything else seems fine. Email is flowing fine. Those that can map drives are having zero issues.
I've checked many of the solutions but most of them point to some major change that has occurred like demoting a DC or the Exchange box pointing to a server that no longer exists or a time difference between the 2 or or or.
Nothing has been changed recently on either server. This message started at 6:45am.
Appreciate any help. Let me know if you need more info.
