Hello

I'm running a SBS 2003 which suddenly this morning is refusing to allow some (not all) of the client computers to connect. The error message is DC not found.

I ran netdiag and dcdiag... here are the results:

Re: error message: DC not found with SBS 2003

Have you tried to use gpresult or rsop to check if the group policy is applied or not. Have a look to this Microsoft article about group policy recommandations for Folder redirection:
