We have a Domain user (has a user account on our domain), that uses his personal laptop (which is not joint to the domain) on site. He has always been able to access server shares (using his login/password). I have setup an outlook profile that he uses to access his mail from his laptop (RPC over HTTP). I have also setup Network printers on his Laptop.
This has work fine for years. About 6 months ago he upgraded his laptop to a newer Windows 7 (64-bit) laptop.
Which was fine, we reconfigured it and has been able to do everything he did before (email, print, share access).
Now about a week ago (and I don’t know if this is the problem), he updated to Windows 7, SP1.
Now when he came in a few days ago, every time he tries and connect to a share on server or access his mail, it locks up the whole laptop. Not just times out or locks up the task, but the whole laptop is froze. Only way out is to kill the power to laptop.
Something I notice when trying to access shares by run line (\\servername), is it give a “Logon Failure” before you even put in any username (see enclose attachment).
Doesn’t matter if you put in “DomainName\username”
User does have permissions to shares and has access them many times in the past.
I have check the logs (event viewer) and only things showing up here is, unexpected shutdown from killing the power to Laptop and I do have a event ID 529, Source Security in the “Security” logs. (Unkonw user name or bad password)
I can log on to any domain computer and access server shares with his username and password.
I have tried with windows firewall on/off (doesn’t matter)
There is no internal corp firewalls to cross (just to outside world and user can access internet fine)
Anyone have any ideas where this went south?
