Hi,

Recently we imaged our lab computers to Windows 8.1 and connected it to the domain.
Problem is it occasionally looses trust with the domain (I think) and the network becomes limited connection.
At this point the computer is inactive. I cannot log in to domain, cannot log into local account. If at all it does log in gets stuck and acts funny. Another funny thing is except for IE, internet works on other browsers.

Only resolution I found so far is when this happen restart to safe mode -> Login and restart again and its fixed. Any idea what might be happening.

Thanks
Manoj

when you created the master image did you sysprep the machine first?

Yes the image was syspreped. One difference is it was windows 8.1 upgraded from windows 7.
There is no error message. its just its a lab machine so occasionally some machine are not used frequently.
if there is prolonged inactivity or if the machine was unplugged for sometime, it looses the trust with the domain.

"There is no error message" - well, what message do you get when you try to logon? That is an error message. please quote it.

Actually no error message, it just stays on the trying to login screen. Currently my resolution is just took it of the domain and it works fine.
