Access Denied Response while trying to login

November 18, 2011 at 18:06:47
Specs: Windows7
Access denied to windows 2003 server, I have two machines, one is a Lenovo (XP Pro) laptop and the other is a Lenovo Desktop (Win 7 Pro upgrade). Both of these machine when login on to the domain (Window 2003 server) returns with access denied. I have also verified the clocks on both machines in relationship to the server are as close as possible.

I also in stalled a new HP Win7Pro box and didn't have any problems at all.

Any ideas on this one....I am pulling my hair and it's driving me nuts.

Did an "administrator" join the machines to the domain. Who is logging in to the client machines? Is the local admin the same as the domain admin, the same for users? Are the domain users listed on the server?

The two accounts which I am having problems are in the User list on the Active Directory. I made sure the user password on the server was used on the clients machine. I performed that task in the user properties, and set the password never to expire.

Now to understand your comment completely.

So the clients workstation Admin password has be the same as the 2003 Server admin account password?

Thanks for you help. This has been driving me nuts.

You didn't answer the question as to whether the computers (not the users) had been joined to the domain.

I like to make the local admin account the same as my domain admin account. In other words, I add the domain admin as a user to the local machine.

"verified the clocks on both machines in relationship to the server are as close as possible."

they should be exactly the same. Google net time to sync the workstations time to that of the server.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
