Hello everyone. Me and my coworkers are administrators in small local network consisting of one win2008 r3 server and windows xp + windows 7 clients.
We have encounter random problems from times to times but this time... we need help.
Some accounts stopped locating the server account when the clients log in the system ending up using a local temporary account. We partially fix the problem making new files in the directory and copying the existing client profile files in them which works most of the time,not always. Why does this happen ? We have checked all permissions and settings, like the path to the profile folder in the server, everything seems correct. It was working fine like this till now. Can someone explain this to me ?
We resently formatted a new pc to replace a client (windows xp). The pc was admitted to the domain normally without effort and the client account we wanted to load on it (which happened to be one of the accounts that have the above problem) start loading just fine only to end up loading only the profile files with the correct permissions BUT IT DIDN'T HAVE THE DOMAIN POLICIES.It's a must this pc to have the domain policies but , i don't know how to troubleshoot this.I need all the ideas I can find.
Can someone help me? I will be delighted to see even one person trying to help me.
Edit: Due to the nature of the company I'm working atm...restarting the server IS-NOT-AN-OPTION.
