Question about Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2003 for PC

1 Answer

I am unable to login our domain user account.

Windows cannot connect to the domain either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. If this message continues to appear contact your System Administrator for assistance.

Hello,

This is usually a computer trust issue, if the computer was previously used to logon to the network and has been rebuilt or had in problems it can have trust issues. First way would be to change the computer name and add the DNS Prefix for your domain. ex desktop.abc.com to desktop1.abc.com. when prompted it is best to use the domain admin or equivalent to make the change and then reboot.

Hope this will work.

Can't sign on. IT says password invalid on the domain


You shouldn't be signing on to a domain. Check your network settings.

If there is a drop down window when the password screen appears see if you can change the domain. Try hitting CTRL+ALT+DEL and see if it allows you to sign bypassing the domain.


You need to login as Administrator and create a new user or change the way the existing user is setup. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice at the login screen. Userid = administrator password = (leave blank) If XP Home, boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot then login as Administreator above. To create a new user goto Start / Settings / Control Panel / USer Accounts To change existing user settings goto Start / Run / enter control userpasswords2. Click on Advanced tab then Advanced button. If all fails you can just reinstall windows.

Cause of user profile not loading


The question is:

What causes a user profile not to be loaded in Windows domain based network?

the answer is:
there are probably 3 broad reasons for this,
1. the user corrupted their profile somehow, such as shutting down without logging off (hard power off)
2. the connection to the domain was lost ungracefully, and offline information was not copied entirely, causing a mismatch of some encrypted profile data, (effectingly corrupting again) and preventing the logon.
3. an unknown event took place between the last time the user sucessfully logged on, and this time where the profile is now not loading. this could be hardware related (faulty Hard disk), RAM parity errors( bad memory), a change to the user profile SID details on the domain controller or other domain change.

Usually the cause is not so much a problem, unless it consistantly reoccurs.

Fixing it however, in XP is fairly easy.
with an account with domain admin rights, just navigate to the UNC path "\\computername\c$\documents and settings" - note the name of the folder/user affected, and just .old their profile folder.
example, username is Philip. - you see in their c:\documents and settings\ folder the folder called Philip, rename it to philip.old or something else.

You have to ensure this is done while the user is logged off, as files in this folder will be in use otherwise. potentially useful to reboot the computer before navigating to the profile folder.

Domain controller error


First reboot once your PC and if that does not work then:
when you login with your local admin account are you able to ping the DC? Also, check the IP settings to make sure they are correct. Are you using DHCP or are you static? If you are able to ping the DC adn IP settings are correct, is the computer name in Active directory? Also if the computer name is in active directory, is it disabled? If you check all these things and you are still having issues, drop the computer from the domain, rename it and create the new name in Active Directory and then add the computer back to the Domain. Somewhere along the line of following these steps, you should get the computer back inline. If other computers are able to connect to the domain then it is definitly an issue with this computer name or a setting on this computer.

Thanks

Windows cannot connect domain either domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable or because your computer was not found


The resolution and workaround to solve the error is as below.
  1. Login to the Windows 2003 domain controller, and delete the computer account object from the Active Directory by using Microsoft Management Console (MMC) which you can always access from “Manage Your Server”.
  2. Log-in to the PC workstation as local administrator. If you cannot logon as local administrator, try to unplug the network cable and logon to the computer by using a domain administrator user that used to logon on the PC before, by using cached logon credentials feature.
  3. Go to Control Panel, then click on System icon, then go to Computer Name tab.
  4. Unjoin the computer from the domain by clicking on “Change”. You should see that Domain button is now selected. Remember your domain name in the text box. Select (Click) on “Workgroup” to remove the computer from the domain, and put any workgroup name in the text box (e.g. workgroup).
  5. Click OK to exit.
  6. Restart the computer (optional)
  7. Go back to the Control Panel, launch System properties and then go to Computer Name tab, and click on “Change”.
  8. Rejoin the domain by uncheck the Workgroup button and select (check) Domain button, and put in the domain name noted above into the text box.
  9. Click OK to exit.
  10. Reboot the PC.
This should solve the unable to logon to domain error, without changing or losing the user profiles on AD.
