Win98 client can't Login and Change Passwd on PDC Emul Win2003

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Technical Guy, Oct 4, 2004.

  1. A very strange problem
    Day 1)
    I've upgraded a Win2000 domain, adding a Win2003 DC
    adprep, dcpromo, add DNS, add WINS, repl DNS, repl WINS, Add Win2003 GC,
    Transfer (not seize) all FSMOs
    Win2003 now is DNS Primary and WINS Primary and WIn200 is DNS Sec and WINS
    Secondary

    None of the Win98 can "change password". If i change back PDC Emul to
    WIn2000 the change passwd is OK, but when i change back PDC emul to
    Win2003... Nobody can change passwd, even with LMHOSTS or DSCLIENT9X.MSI
    installed. Records on WINS are OK

    Day 2)
    I'v removed the WINS Secondary (Win2000). Stopped service and stop
    replication
    If i try to use Win2003 PDC Emulator, the WIn9X clients cannot do logins AND
    do not change passwds... Worst!

    I have a NETDIAG.LOG of the servers, to show to anyone that can help me
    All policies are Win2000-like, no SMB Sign, and etc
    I'm thinking, thinking, thinking, but i cannot solve the problem
    Can i try to use Brocadasts?
    Can i use Netmon to compare logon traffic and do some analisys?
    Can i change the NoLMHash do disable if only half of the clients have
    DSCLIENT installed?
    Can i enable NBT on Win2003? (It is factoryDefault)

    Hey,

    This is a link to one of Microsoft's PSS Reporting tools called
    MPSREPORTS. Can you run this tool on Windows 2000 DC, on WINDOWS 2003
    DC, and also send me the IP Settings from the 98 client machine.

    Once this tool runs, it should create a bunch of files and a CAB FILE
    which is a compression of all the logs it just created. I use this guy
    a lot to accumulate all data to one workstation and then look at each
    set and compare settings.

    If you are willing to, email it across to me.

    DOWNLOAD MPS from here:
