Can't logon to users over network

July 31, 2009 at 06:17:56
Specs: Windows XP Pro
We have a computer that has several domain user accounts on it. Recently, somebody changed the local administrators account password on this computer, and we are now unable to login to the network accounts from this computer; they work fine from any of the others. I wanted to know if changing the password would be able to cause this, and if so, what could be done to fix it. I'm not sure what information would be relevant, but am willing to provide anything neccesary.

*We don't know what the password used to be, this is why it was changed.
*All of the local user accounts work fine.

It sounds like they changed more than the local admin password. What accounts besides admin are listed in users & groups? Is the PC still joined to the domain?

Did they change the password on a laptop which may have become disjoined from the domain or was the password changed on a sever?

If it is a computer that may have become disjoined then simply joining a Workgroup then joining back to the domain will update the locally cashed password.

Just logon to the computer by changing the Domain from "This Computer" to the Domain you are trying to logon to. Then as its administrator and password. If that does not work try doinga "MYDOMAIN\administrator" so that the computer knows that you are not trying to logon locally.
