Trouble with workstation(s) logging onto SBS 2003

    Ok, here's my issue. I have a client who has three workstations, and two
    offsite VPN - remote users. The server is P4 with 3G of RAM, has a UPS
    attached and one of the workstations logging on (which has the major issue)
    is a Windows 7 Professional workstation. She is having issues of it logging
    onto the server.

    She claims she has to try it numerous times before it works, losing hours of
    day's work! (Angry which I don't blame her for).

    I have checked the server, scanned for viruses, all clean! Visited the
    Event's Log, found several errors in the log. NETLOGON: dynamic registration
    or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain
    "ForestDnsZones. DavidKTrotterAssoicates.local. 'failed. These records are
    used by other computers to locate this server as a domain or as an LDAP
    server (if specificed domain is an application partition.) Etc.

    Also, looked back in the logs, found several other errors: DHCP Server,
    acpi, TermServDevices, Service Control Manager, Application Popup - which
    indicates this error message: "An I/O operation initiated by the Registery
    failed unrecoverably. Teh Registry could not read in, or write out, of flush,
    one fo the files that contain the system's image of the Registry."

    Also, warnings of "print" pops up as warning.

    Not sure what action to take, I do know a couple of weeks back, was
    installing Quickbooks 10 onto the server, had to reboot it! When I did I got
    a blue and white (kiss of death) screen... and the memory started a DUMP!

    Now, I'd been here for over an hour now... nothing strange has happened to
    the system(s)... no errors except a terminal services error, which happened
    moments ago... but the workstation is talking to the server.

    My urgency is to discover what the issue is here, and resolve it promptly as
    possible. My client claims only one workstation is being affected by it, as
    the other two is slightly affected... which is very strange to me.

    I know that Windows 7 isn't the problem, I'd looked on the logs and only
    warnings about WLAN basically has stopped, and that winini has reported:
    "Custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application. The
    system administrator should review the list of libraries to ensure they are
    related to trusted applications."

    Any advise would be most appreciated.

    Did you configure the server using the WIZARDS ONLY?

    At the workstation, do an IPCONFIG /ALL from the command prompt, is the
    ONLY DNS IP address the same as the SBS server?

  3. Hello Dave,

    Thanks for your post.

    I agree with Leythos that please make sure the Windows 7 client is correctly joined SBS domain using the connect computer wizard. Run the "IPconfig /all" command for
    detailed IP information.

    Please also restart the SBS server if possible or at least restart the NetLogon service to reset the DNS records. Then on Windows 7 client, use "IPconfig /flushdns" and
    "IPconfig /registerdns" commands to renew its DNS registration.

    Hope this helps. Also, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.

    Best regards,
