SBS 2003 logon problem

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Hello, I have a client with an SBS 2003 server, the hard drive was flagging up ocasional errors and was a bit small anyway so this weekend I changed all 3 hard drives (RAID 5 array). Set up a new array, restored the C drive and data drives from a Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery backup. I used the C drive backup from a few weeks ago and the latest data drive backup. All went very well, seemed to be running fine.
When I took it back to site today, it runs fine but the clients refuse to log on to it. Bizarrely, if I strat up a client without the network plugged in and log in offline then plug in the network, it synchronises and all works great, but if you log off and back on, it won't accept the login / password. Any ideas please?
