Logon Failure : The target account name is incorrect.

Hi, ok here is my setup......

Server - Server 2003 R2

Clients - Windows 7 64bit

Issue -  Reception1 has 2 printers connected to it and shared out and has been working for months now......until today! Reception2 or any other computer cant access Reception1 (\\reception1) just comes up with 'Logon Failure : The target account name is incorrect'.

I will be able to access the system later today where I will drop from the domain reception1 and add again.

Any other things I should be looking at?

My first thought would be to check the event logs on Reception1 for any errors or warnings which might point you to the problem.  Also, when you log on to Reception 1 to check the event logs, I would suggest you log in with a domain account, not a local account, and watch for any error messages that might come up during the logon process.

It sounds like you suspect a broken trust relationship between the workstation and domain.  That definitely seems like a possibility.  Is there anything else that leads you to suspect that's the issue?

Not really, everything else seems to work ok on Reception1 it just seems to fell of the edge of the world when it comes to shares. Just hope when I do take it of the domain it will go back on ok :) . I will check the local logs and see if anything wrong there.

also check time - look if it synchronizes with DC. Check event logs on DC and server.

Check through the logs and yes it was having a issue with the Domain, took off the domain and put back and everything worked as it should, looks like it did loose the ;trust relationship'
