Single workstation has to be rejoined to domain
Posted on 2011-10-12
I have 100 + users in an office logging into a specific domain. One single workstation out of all of them receives the error stating "Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down, or because your computer was not found." The quickest way I've found to fix it is to log on to the local admin account, pull it off the domain and then rejoin it.
The problem is that it continues to happen to only this computer. It happens about twice a month (the user is on it almost every day). We use the same hardware and the same OS (Windows XP Pro) for all of our workstations, so I'm having problems nailing down exactly what the cause is. Any one else run into this? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
