Unauthenticated Network?

    Hi-

    On some of the workstations on my SBS2003 network the Network and
    Sharing Center is showing the network connection as "Unauthenticated"
    and showing a yellow triangle icon.

    It doesn't seem to have any impact on performance that I can see, but
    looks messy.

    What does Unauthenticated in this context mean, and why do some
    stations show it and not others? How do I get rid of it?

    Problem Solved!

    Solution was to unjoin the workstation from the domain, reset the
    secure channel, then rejoining the workstation back to the domain

    I have the same problem but the solution that worked for you Bob didn't for
    me. Any other suggestions guys? And there is loss of functionality. The
    firewall profile detected is not "domain" but "public" and the group policy
    firewall settings are not in effect. That means I cannot connect to the
    workstation via remote desktop and other such issues.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Alex.

  4. We have seen many cases like this one. Try this:

    1. Remove the Vista from the domain.
    2. Install MS update KB926505. or check this post.

    3. Rejoin the domain.

    Please post back with the result.

    Thanks very much for the reply Robert. I did all that you suggested and now
    when trying to use the client deployment tools I get the following error:

    "Make sure that only one network adapter is enabled and that is connected to
    the Small Business Server"

    The clients are connected via wireless to the server and there is only one
    connection active (the wireless one).

    Thanks in advance for any new suggestions.

  6. Try to disable IPv6 if you haven't done so. Or check this post. Please post
    back with the result.

    Make sure that only one network adapter is enabled

  8. Same error here with a new Dell Vostro 1700 running Vista. Trying to run
    Connectcomputer. IP6 disabled, wired LAN connection and Bluetooth connection
    disabled. DNS is the SBS server. IPCONFIG still shows a couple of odd
    connection entries I have not seen before:

    Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection* 6
    Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection* 11

    Just setup a Vostro 1400 last week for another SBS customer w/o hitch. What
    gives Microsoft?

  9. I figured out that you need to run the ConnectComputer wizard on the Wired
    Connection. Disable all others and it will run. Would be nice if the error
    message would tell you this so I am not spending 1/2 hour of the client's
    time troubleshooting.

    I too am getting this, at the moment on both my laptop (New Dell with Vista
    Business) and my desktop, joined to a standard Windows Server R2 domain.
    Yellow warning triangle with exclamation mark, network connection showing as
    unauthenticated.
    It's interfering with my offline files on the laptop. Both machines fully
    patched and running SP1, though it was happening before this.

    Anyone any ideas? This 'unauthenticated network' thing seems do be
    completely undocumented by MS, I can't find anything on it.

    Guys,

    I figure out how to make the ConnectComputer wizard work but still no fixing
    for the "unauthenticated network" issue and it's driving me nuts. Any more
    ideeas? Have tried everything and no luck. It seams that NLA is not seeing
    the DC as authenticated but cannot find more info on this anyware. Please
    help.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
    Alex.

  12. Microsoft has dramatically improved the utility and overall stability o
    System Restore utility. I went back in time to the point when Networ
    Location was "Domain" & "Private" and there was no second manage
    network location domain.local 2 and then it all started working as th
    charm :
    I went through the list of the software I installed (after tha
    checkpoint that worked). I found WinDVD software which comes with Visua
    C++ package (notSP1) which at least not officially compatible wit
    Vista. That also brings the update for XML services from the memory. Al
    together it buggered the whole thing. Will keep an eye on it
