We have Windows 7 clients in an AD domain with 2008 R2 Domain Controllers.
Some users, when they log in, are missing all files in their Documents folder (their Documents folders are redirected to a DFS network share) and the .jpg (also on a network share) which sets their Desktop does not load so they end up with a black desktop.
Clients can browse the internet.
Clients can ping (by hostname) all Domain controllers.
nslookup fails with a 'non existent domain' error.. unless you specify the ip address of a domain controller in the query.. ie nslookup www.yahoo.com 192.168.0.3
All help resolve the problem.. but only temporarily..
Where is the best place to start looking.. dns, ldap, net logon, dcdiag, dfsutil,..?
Any help would be greatly appreciated..
