tcp/ip problem

By lday610 ·
I have a small network of win2k pc's. I just made a ghost of 2 to make room for 2 new ones. I have tcp/ip and netbuis protocols on all. i have dhcp assigning all ip addresses. 2 people on the network say they can't log on when everyone else is logged on. If tey get there early they are fine to log in. How do I correct this problem and avoid it in the future?

Your not clear on what you did with the image (ghost). My guess is you created the image without running sysprep. This is possibly creating a situation where two pc's are trying to access the network with the same computer account.

Yes use sysprep before imaging. Also disjoin the PC from the domain even before doing Sysprep.

Here is a link to info on using Sysprep:

Sounds like you have duplicated SID's.

My guess would be that you didn't change the netbios names of the computers after you ghosted them. Make sure the machines all have unique netbios names.

Hehe..easy one. Why would you use netbui when you have tcp/ip running. You can just have tcp/ip and configure your DHCP correctly. Netbui is for small networks so there is no need for this protocol.
