User Manager Hangs.

By baird.jason ·
We are having a curious issue. On both Nt 4 DC's (PDC and BDC) in domain, when I launch user manager it will sit there forever and tell me it can't find a domain to administer and sometimes it comes up just fine. When this is happening the domain appears normal and none of our 600 users ever complains. When trying to change a password it can take 30 minutes and sometimes 20 seconds for User Manager to populate. We are using NT 4.0 server on both with SP6a installed. Any ideas what could be causing this?

This will occur if you are running the WINS server service on a domain controller, and it does not point to itself as the WINS server.

Under network properties, make sure any DC running WINS has its own IP address listed under both the primary and secondary WINS servers settings.

Apart from that.. what does your Event Viewer say?
Try reapplying the Service Pack on both servers and see if it resolves the issue.
