Why can't I login to the domain using XPpro?

By allisonmea ·
I have an XPpro box on a w2k server domain. I had to disable 4 system drive mappings in order to give the client access to a network resource which required one of the drive letters used by the system. I mapped the resource, and was unable to login to the domain. I re-enabled the drives I had disabled, but still couldn't login.

I can ping the XP box, and access resources logged in as Adminstrator, so the nic is ok, but Active Directory login fails.

I haven't tried deleting the mappings I added because I need them.

What are the 4 external drive mappings in XP all about?

The AD Account is probably locked out due to repeated retries.

Can you not log onto that box with any account, or just the one you were trying?

If you have Windows XP SP2 disable the Windows firewall and try it again.

Hope this helps
