On Some workstation there's a event error:

No Domain Controller is available for domain XXXX due to the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

Domain is windows 2003 while workstation is Windows XP Pro with SP2

However the workstation don't have any issue on any drive mapping and all 4 domain controller is up and reachable...   Is there any testing I can run on the workstation since it's annoying.

Thanks.

Does it have a fixed IP address ? Is the default gateway correct?

Are the settings of the dns servers OK?
Can you ping the hostname of the domain controller?

You can try to flush the dns, run - cmd - ipconfig /flushdns and maybe also to register dns, ipconfig /registerdns

Hi:

   Does the failing workstation show same hour than the workstations that are ok? If the difference is more than 5 minuts, you won´t be able to log on.

remove the workstations from the domain, they re-add them to the domain.  Creates new cid on active directory

1.  I can ping the hostname for all domain controller.
2.  Run the ipconfig /flushdns couple time
3.  The error only occurs every couple hours and beside that there's no other error, the workstation is running totally fine.
