Kicked Out of Windows AD

New twist that really has me puzzled. I have a user that remains
connected to the NetWare mappings, but is periodically kicked out of her
Windows mappings and she needs to log out to reconnected. Cannot Explore
to a Windows server at all. Plus she loses her Windows printers.
I have tried everything I can think of to fix short of a format and
re-install.
Newest NW client, sfc /scannow, winsock repair, delete and re-install
printers, and the list goes on.

She is in charge of all the legalistic approvals for International and
governmental shipping for the Sales department so has quite a few special
apps installed. As well as special certificates for all the Https sites
she needs to get into so I really don't want to wipe it if I can help.
I have considered a corrupt windows client as I have seen that more than
corrupt NetWare clients. So if no one has any new ideas I will add a 2 to
her username in Windows and try that. Which means moving her profile and
such.

Re: Kicked Out of Windows AD

I can't think of anything with the Novell Client that could cause this.
Heck, I can't think of anything from a Windows point of view either.

Can you ping the resources?
What results do you get from a NET USE \\DOMAIN ?

Re: Kicked Out of Windows AD

Craig:
Thanks for the prompt response. I don't believe it has anything to do
with the NetWare Client 4.91SP4) but I couldn't think of anywhere to turn.
No she cannot ping or see anything on the windows side but can see all NW
services no problem. Log out and back restores, but our Sales Dept
typically have 10 to 12 apps open at once. ;>

Re: Kicked Out of Windows AD

Well, I would post in the MS Forums, but I will see what I can do to assist
since I know the help there is not always up to Novell standards 😆

Is she using IP to connect to the Novell Services? She could be using IPX
to Novell resources and having an IP Problem that is not being seen by the
Novell Client for that reason.
You can check your NetWare Connections in NetWork Neighborhood to see how
she is connecting.

Can she ping the Windows Resources by IP Address?
She could be having Name Resolution issues? Does she use DNS or WINS to
resolve the names?
You may want to try pinging the Windows resource by both Short and
Full-Qualified names to see if either work.

Re: Kicked Out of Windows AD

Craig:
I agree, I have never gotten any help at the MS forum so haven't been
there in ages.
Pure IP here with SLP. Using IP number for the DA server as preferred
because we had that problem with Trend Micro (TID3445831).
I could not ping by IP number I'll try name next time she gets booted out.
We use DNS & a DHCP server. The problem just started recently. She did
get a "No trust" or something like that so I removed her from the Domain
into workgroup and then back thinking that would fix it.
It is happening quite frequently and she usually just logs out and back in
and doesn't say anything, so I'll have to tell eher to call me.

Re: Kicked Out of Windows AD

If you can't ping by IP Address, I am really confused.
No idea how or why this would happen unless somehow those devices are
normally configured to not allow PING.
This may be tossing confusion into the ring.
You may want to test pings when she is working.

Try removing her from the domain, rename the computer, run a SIDChanger, and
then Place her back in the domain.
Maybe somehow (Due to an Imaging Mishap) there are two computers on the
Domain with the same name and/or GUID that is causing confusion.

Re: Kicked Out of Windows AD

Craig:
We don't use imaging and we have a strict computer naming theme that
eliminates duplication normally. I will try removing her from the domain
again and rename the computer this time and then put her back into the
domain.
We can normally ping everywhere. We did just flatten the network six
months ago from four subnets to one and that elminated a lot of routing
problems.
I might also try a dnsflush. ipconfig release & renew didn't help the
last time I tried it, but I might try that again also.
On vacation until next Wednesday but I will be back here again.
Thanks for all your help,
Peter

Re: Kicked Out of Windows AD

Thanks Timo, I had upgraded her from 4.91 SP2 to SP4. Perhaps I'll
uninstall and re-install. She is currently off on medical so I cannot
test anything with her username at this time.
