XP Pro No logging on to 2003 sever

November 16, 2010 at 15:36:48
Specs: Windows XP Pro, 2.13 GHz/ 1 Gig Ram
This is killing me! I can logon as admin or another user but cannot log on as the intended user, The second you hit (enter) it is like the machine goes into slow mode and then when it does finally come up the drives are not mapped e-mail is not working. Please simple answer is going to come from this but I am at my wits end.

Save me please

PS No viruses computers are old but they do work. I have logged into them and checked everything I can, But I am missing something.

Prob. 100+ computers and trouble with just three. No Errors show on these machine.

how long were these three working or is this a new development?
are these computers members of the domain?
can these users logon from a different computer?

They were working machines November 4 and 5 and they are on a domain and no they cannot login anywhere! Thanks for asking I was getting a little windy with my post so that is why I stopped. Two are Laptops and one a desktop and nobody logs into them but the user! Now if they gave there logons to anybody else I do not know. I have no reason to think anybody is.

To test domain logons, if having an issue from one machine, it to go to a known working machine and have them logon to the domain.

If they can logon, its a local to the machine issue. If they can't its a domain account issue.

Not clear from your answer if you had them try to logon from different machines then the three problem ones.

You didn't state if these laptops/pc are members of the domain.

Sorry I thought I did The answer is yes they are on a domain If they would lodon right, but they are not loggin into the domain. I have tried on several machine and they will not completely logon They appear to be but they are not. I can access the domain from they run prompt but thats not right. I have tried on my on laptop but they will not login and no error to go by. They domain is running server 2003 and the clients are xp pro. It also takes five to ten minutes for them to come up to windows xp but the domain is not there.

on the workstations, is the dns entry the ip address of the DC? It should be.
are these newly created accounts?
are you doing roaming profiles?

Okay I have fixed two of them buy putting in the domain address an alternate and they came up so I took them back out and they are fine but I still have one Laptop that will not go to my domain here but is hitting three of the others domains world wide??? Not for sure it might be in the recreation process?
