No AD connection on server

I have a Windows Server 2008 that have some problems.

When I try to add a member to a group (Remote Desktop Users) I get this dialog when clicking "Advanced" telling me "The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security. Please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you. "
I tried to remove the machine from DNS to see if it reregistered, but it didn't (after reboot).

On the server where I am trying to add a user to a group, I get this event:
The Security System detected an authentication error for the server
ldap/ The failure code from authentication protocol 
Kerberos was "  (0x80080341)".

Open in new window

Level: Warning
IEvent ID: 40960

Any ideas?

Problem solved. It turned out to be due to an old error/mistake in group policy, that only allowed the servers to use DES_CBC_MD5. After removing the bad GPO the policy wasn't reset on the server.

This is what I did to solve the problem:


Opened Secpol.msc


Went to Local Policies/Security Options


Found Network security: Configure encryption types allowed for Kerberos and removed the tick from DES_CBC_MD5 (and all others if there were any)
Thanks for your suggestions anyway. It could just as well have been any of that.

Case closed :-)

Can you verify if you DC/server are activated (genuine) ?
