Same darn browse error

By cannond5 ·
Okay, I crashed my NT workstation machine yeterday (AOL 5.0 is NOT compatible with NT). I have reformatted, reinstalled NT, have SP6 installed, and all my networking settings configured. I can SEE all the clients on my network, but if I select any of the machines, I get "the network path was not found". This is true of PCs on the PDC, as well as PCs on the BDC. Prior to the crash yesterday, I could browse them all. Also, I can't even map a drive to the BDC, yet I can ping it. What have I missed/what's wrong? THANKS!! I can also connect to the other server using tcp/ip connection with pcAnywhere.

Sounds like a name resolution problem to me. Are you using DNS, WINS or an LMHOSTS file for name resolution? Check your TCP/IP settings - and make sure you have configured the correct IPs, if using DNS or WINS, or that the Use LMHOSTS checkbox is checked if using a file. If you are getting this information from a DHCP server, make sure you have it configured to use DHCP. Hope this helps!

The two things I would look at are whether you have added the machine back to the domain (sometimes you have to remove it from the domain and re-add it to get the machine account secure channel reset properly).

After doing that, I would manually delete the WINS record from the WINS database and then log on again to recreate it.

If that doesn't work, run ipconfig /all and carefully check to see that the IP stack thinks it is configured like you think it is configured.

I did all this, and STILL have the same problem. Thanks.

go to the server manager, and delete your workstation from the list.. then make sure it's deleted in WINS..

then, on the workstation, take it out of the domain (by putting in into a made up workgroup, then add it back to the domain).

This should create a wins entry, and an entry in server manager with the correct SID.

Hope that helps.

Seems to me that your machines SID is gone off the network. I would say that the easiest way to recover from this is to delete the account out of server manager and change your machine to be part of a workgroup named workgroup. Then re-add to the domain with the domain admin password. I have had this happen to me, and thats the way that i remedied it. :) lemme know if it works.

I did as you suggested, but the problem remains!! Maybe I'll see if I can just get a new box! :)

When you reinstalled NT Workstation it created a computer with the same name as it used to have, but with a different SID that is unknown to your Domain Comtrollers. Remove the workstation from the Domain in Server Manager, then add it back.

I've done that, and it doesn't help...I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong, or something I've missed...I wish I could figure it out.
