Strange logon behavoir

    I have an SBS2003 network that has recently been receiving interactive logon
    errors on the workstations when the users logon. I can't see anything on the
    server as far as client policies that would prevent users from logging onto
    their local computers. To fix the problem I have been removing the computers
    from the domain and then adding them back. This seems to fix the problem for
    about 2 hours then the same thing happens. We have a tablet PC that connects
    via wireless G that usually suffers the problem first. Has anyone seen this?
    I have looked local computer policies on affected workstations and found
    nothing and I have looked the server client computer policies and found
    nothing out of the norm.

    Another thing I noticed that is strange is that in the event log I am
    getting out of sync errors. It says to check the time on the workstation and
    make sure it is the same as the server. But the workstations are usually
    about the same time as the server (less than a Minute difference).

    Any help would be great!


    TIA

  2. Hi TRD

    Are you using the connectcomputer Wizard to join the computers? Please post
    IPCONFIG /ALL from your server and one of the Workstaations

    What are you looking for with this information?

  4. That looks good, but the clue is in your last line from your first posting.
    The time is not being synchronized.
    On the workstations from the commandprompt:

    net time /setsntp:servername
    w32tm /resync (if they are XP's, else w32tm -once -v)

    The first command executes fine (Net time). But when I try and resync I get
    this message

    Sending resync command to local computer...
    The computer did not resync because no time data was available.

    What is happening that would prevent it from resyncing?

  6. Nothing. It will try again in some time.

  7. That is, I assume you have setup the server as a timeserver? Have a look at
    www.smallbizserver.net for the details.

  8. Hi

    In addition to time, how did you join the computers? did you use the
    connectcomputer Wizard?

    I have added the workstations to the network with the client wizard. The
    time service was not running so I have started it. I will see tomorrow if
    that fixed the problem. Thanks for the fast replies!

    I still have that one tablet PC that will not let the user log on unless it
    is to the local machine.

    Can't log on interactively.

    Any ideas?
