Windows 9x Logon

By dlucas ·
I have a Windows 2000 Active Directory Domain. The Windows 2000 Professional computers currently are not having a problem. The Problem is that when a user goes to log on to a Windows 9x machine it gives this error ?The Domain Password you have entered is invalid, or access to the sever is denied? when you hit ?OK? and WITHOUT changing a thing (username and password) and hit enter again then it lets you in. It seems to be doing this for all win9x machines. I know the password and username are correct but it won?t let you in at first. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
Thanks

I don't know if you have installed SP1 or not. If you haven't that would be the first thing that I would try. I ran into a similar problem when I was working with a different company. That was a NT4 server in a WAN environment. I got around it by changing the workgroup name to the domain name. Everything worked after that, but it was never 100% correct. Good luck

Try deleting all the pwl files stored on the machine. This will delete all your password files so that no password are stored on the machine. When you enter the password at log in the password files will be recreated.
