The problem I'm having is that the workstation randomly cant log into the server(or more appropriately cant access any network drives or access any server based programs)
I don't have the exact system specs but it is a dell PC, so far i have swapped the network card out with another card and tried entirely new cabling (new cable new port on the switch) and this makes no difference. I can however get to the internet from the workstation and it will make it through the log in screen to the domain without error, the error only happens when we try to access something on the server. It will either ask for a user name and password and not accept any user name\password combo, or it will give an error that the drive is not accessible. Outlook will sometimes work and sometimes not when we are having this problem. Restarting the workstation fixes the problem sometimes but it requires that it be restarted several times. it takes the employee who uses it sometimes 30-45 min to get into the system and after it has been left alone for a while (lunch break or overnight) it will not log out but start having this error. Also the printer becomes inaccessible (it is a network printer). any help on this would be appreciated.
If any more info is needed i will try to get it to you all as fast as possible.
