Hello All,

XP desktop member of the domain for 4 years or more. Can't log in to domain with user or administrator.

From the local administrator account on this desktop I can do the following
Can ping server by IP
Can ping server by server name
Can reach shares through Run command
Can reach shares through network places
I have flushed DNS
I have verified time is the same as server
I have verified computer object exists in AD
I have verified user is not locked out (expired password ect..)
I have released and renewed with no issues
Can access internet
Can ping anywhere via DNS or IP
No other computer has an issue
All users can not reach the domain controller on this desktop.

Bad profile was a thought but a domain admin cannot even log in and they have not yet created a profile on this desktop.

Any ideas?

Try running TCP/IP Reset. That might help.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Restart the computer

If that does not help, the computer may have a virus. XP is dead and is now helpless against virus attacks.

Try moving the workstation back to a workgroup, rebooting and then rejoining the domain.

The  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt didn't work...it was a good opportunity to upgrade the desktop that was purchased in 2004 :).

Thanks for the reply...
