Why these workstations were not able find the DC?
Posted on 2014-03-16
This is using a MS Windows 2003 AD domain. As for the workstations, there are XP, Win7, and little bit on Win8. Once in a while, the problem of workstation not able to logon to the domain occurs. Please see the error message in details:
The session setup by the computer ACCT_EXEC1_PC failed to authenticated.
The name(s) of the account(s) referenced in the security database
is wks77_PC$. The following errors occurred:
Access is denied
I heard that this is because the password of the computer account reset and some how, it wasn't recognized by the DC. The only way I can do is to disjoin this workstation, and then re-join it back. This method works, but still, this is not the right method right? Any way to solve the problem once and for all?
