On the Windows 2003 Server (Domain Controller), I saw a few of these errors from the system event logs.
"The session setup from the computer TLAILD108 failed to authenticate. The name of the account referenced in the security database is TLAILD108$. The following error occured: Access is Denied."
The NetLogon service on the PDC logs this error message when the password is not synchronized between the computer and PDC. This is a common problem. When a workstation joins the domain, a trust is created with the PDC along with a secured channel password on both machines. This password, by default, automatically changes every seven days. If for some reason the process of password change fails, this error will be generated. One may have to reset the machine account password (can be done with the NETDOM utility - from NT Resource Kit or for Windows 2000 from the Support Tools ). The password change is initiated by the workstation
Honestly, I don't understand this. I need help with this. How do I resolve this error from taking place.
It says to reset the machine account password. How do you do this? How do I know which user's password needs to be reset? The workstation is TLAILD108 and a few users may use this PC to log on to the Domain.
Attached is a screen capture of the error.
