Administrator Account Cannot Browse The Network

By tburke ·
For some reason the Administrator account on the server has lost some of its privs. When attempting to browse to workstations I get the following message: "Logon Failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer."

I have admin privs with my login and I get the same error when trying to browse. I have tried to look at every possible place that might resolve this but to no avail. I am looking to the "techies" for some assistance.

Have you tried

Creating another User Profile with Admin Privileges and see if that works now. It is possible that the User Account has been corrupted somehow along the way.

That is the easy test things get more complicated from here on. :)

Col,

Thank you for the quick reply. Unfortunately, it gives me the same message: \\computername\c$ is not accessable. You might not have permissions to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Logon Failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.

One other item that may or may not be related. I cannot add a shared printer on any computer on the domain. It does not show under the "Add Printer" option. It stopped working at approximately the same time. Weird....

What admin account are you using, local admin account or domain admin account.

Goto your AD server sign in with the admin acount you are having problems with open the manage computers browse to the computer your having problem with, have a look at the account information if your admin account is not in it add it, if you get access the admin account is fine and you just need to add the admin account to local machine if not use another admin account or create one and see what happens

Re: Admin

by tburke In reply to Admin

I was logged into the domain admin account on the server. The same problem occurs when I am logged onto my workstation and try to browse. I have both local and domain admin rights. This is really strange. On day it all worked and the next I had the problem. There are only two of us with admin rights and neither made any changes that would cause this to happen....I am hoping that the Republic can assist me in getting it resolved. What say you.....has anyoone had this problem in the past?

Logon to the Server.
<br>
Click Start, Run, type in regedt32 and press Enter. Navigate to these two Registry Keys and check for suspicious entries.
<br><br>
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
<br><br>
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
<br><br>
Example:
<br>
winme.exe = Net-Worm:W32/Brontok.B

Jacky,

That was a scary thought. But I went there and, luckily, it looks all normal. I run anti-virus sofware and make sure that it is updated all the time. Here is another wrench in the mix. I tried to push my client anti-virus software to a machine on my network and got the same error: "\\computername is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out id you have access permissions. Logon Failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer." Funny, I am the administrator...what does that say about me...

DS happens, dont beat yoruself up about it

by XnavyDK In reply to Not There...

I noticed you keep saying domain admin. try the default administrator account on the server directly at the machine, not remote. Not your admin account or your domain admin account. the one that you set up when the OS was installed. Then check the accounts in question. Can you see your security logs? Its my guess that the domain admin account has been locked out. Reset it with the same password.

I am glad that area is clean

by Jacky Howe In reply to Not There...

is the ather admin having the same problems. Is the other admin using the same account or a seperate account. Check the account that you are using on the server to see if you still have the right membership groups. Copy the Domain Administrators account and create a new one. If that works you may have a corrupt profile. If that is case delete that account.

We have all faced the contact the administrator at some stage or other, don't let that deter you and don't take it personally. Sometimes a problem is not easily detected.
