There's one workstation at the company I work for that seems to have forgotten it has domain access to the network. When trying to log on with the domain connection it gives an error message saying that the computer's disconnected from the network, user or computer have been forgotten and to contact the system administrator. As I am the administrator there's a slight problem. It allowed me to log on using the administrator account to check everything, however after logging off it won't allow it anymore. Logging on locally to the machine works fine and can still access the servers without being mapped to them.

What I've done:
Made sure the servers themselves could see the computer and permissions were set.
Double check/quintuple check the TCP/IP settings both from the ethernet adapter and the command line.
Released and renewed the IP.
Rebooted several times.
Rechecked all settings with other workstations.

The problem is with every user account and refuses to connect via the domain. I have managed to setup the user as a user on the local machine and manually mapped them to the servers and connected them to the internet, so everything SHOULD work and yet it doesn't. Needless to say, it's been extremely frustrating as it appears nothing is wrong and yet everything is.

Any advice/guidance would be great. Thank you.

Yeah. It shows up in AD and I'm able to access the domain, but can only log on with the local computer instead of through the domain as usual.

Everything appears to be correct, but it's possible I'm missing something and just can't see it.

Alright. I'll give that a shot once we close tonight so as not to hinder productivity as it works as is (if not properly) right now. Thanks for the help.

Heh. I just wanted to let you know that this has been resolved. I deleted the account and reinstated it, though that didn't solve it. Conveniently we had plans to change our IP scope last Friday and that seemed to fix it. We're not sure what caused it in the first place, but changing our IP scope fixed it.

Thanks for your input, this thread can be closed.
