Another random fault, that is just baffling me, and was wondering if anyone could point me in a right direction to try and figure out whats happening.
the situation is that in a site we have a workgroup of machines, majority of them are win2k based. Running a DB server and connect into a winxp ‘server’ machine via UNC paths and DB connection paths.
The win XP machine is connected to an international domain. What we are noticing is in random sites when the ADSL connection drops, the WinXP machine attempts to authenticate itself on the domain, fails (obviously) and in doing so decides to reject any incomming connecition request with the following System event log;
55788,System,NETLOGON,ERROR,ComputerName,Wed Jun 24 06:26:08 2009,5789,None,Attempt to update DNS Host Name of the computer object in Active Directory failed. The updated value was ‘ComputerName.Domain’. The following error occurred: The parameter is incorrect.
(Obivoulsy the computer name and domain name have been removed)
The issue has only since appeared since the blanket update of SP3 on the xp machines, but cannot find anything that would point to this issue.
I have ensured all DNS Suffix are correct, and everything on the AD is the same as it always has.
So does anyone have any pointers for to take a gander at? for i feel like hitting my head against a wall atm…for ADSL in certain areas just plainly SUCKS!
