    When we came across this error , we tried 2 solutions posted in this post...though time consuming we could minimize the error by tryin out most of the solutions which we thought would create less risk ...

    If the servers are core and production base then removing accounts or disabling them must be done very cautiouslly... try the one which recomends and seems to be less tricky for u..trial and error will get u close to the soulution.

    Accepted Solution

    The isssue was related to a corrupt Group Policy for Memeber Server Remote Access.
