    XP units having trouble finding domain


    by jtankard ·


    Since a power outage a few weeks ago several of my XP Pro SP3 units are having trouble accessing the domain. I try to log into them with my username and password and get error messages saying the domain is unavailable. a restart with last known good configuration works on some, others I have to log into the unit as admin. Of those the network ID wizard works with some. Others I have to join a workgroup then rejoin the domain. That fixes most of them, but there are a few that revert after shutdown or restart and I have to repeat the procedure. Is there anything other than wiping that I can try? These are instructional computers for blind students and are loaded with lots of assistive software that I really don’t want to have to reload if at all possible.

      My guess is that the battery has gone flat and therefore the PC clock time is wrong which breaks the trust relationship between AD and the workstation
