I'm currently facing a baffling situation with one of a workstation in my organization. It was working fine one day and the next it just won't allow anyone to log in.
My organization is running a network with a domain on a windows 2003 server and the workstation with the problem is on Windows XP with service pack 3.
The problem here is that when I look into the server's Active Directory, the workstation name is not listed.
One might think that this is just a network issue but here's the catch....
I (as the network administrator) can't even log in into the workstation as a local admin. Not even in any "Safe Mode" options. Although re-formatting is at the top of my troubleshooting list now, I'm stuck with the fact that there are alot of vital documents in that workstation.
Any help here is highly appreciated.
