Domain Controller

By ray_singleton ·
Our Windows NT Server crashed last week. Since then one of our workstations can not fin the domain controller on our network. I can ping within my office, but I can not see past the firewall. I have tryed all the troubleshooting methods I know of, looking for a solution.

You may need to re-create the workstation's account in server manager on the PDC, unless you've already done so. I'm assuming that the server that crashed was the PDC??

The first answer sound correct but when you make the new account delete the old account first and leave the computer off that can't see the PDC, after the new account is made turn on the computer and try to log on with your new account

Good LuckMIKE

Hi Ray,

The two answers above are correct if your workstation is running NTW, but irrelevant if it is running Win9x/ME as it doesn't set up a trust relationship as NTW does.

DOMAIN
1. (NTW) Do as suggested previously and delete the computer account for the dodgey workstation from Server Manager on the server. Wait about 15-30 minutes if this account still appears for it to be removed properly. Recreate the account for this workstation (make sure the workstation name is Alphanumeric only - no "weird" characters). Power on the workstation and it should reconnect to the DC (domain controller).

PING
Ping fails on this workstation only? If so, are you running a DHCP server, or statically assigned IPs? If you are running a DHCP server, then make sure that the dodgey workstation is configured for DHCP. If static, check settings with the other machines on the LAN.

If all machines fail, then ICMP_ECHO is disabled at your router or firewall/proxy. This is fairly normal now,unfortunately, due to various DOS attacks that have occurred recently.

Regards,
Hilton
