    workstations losing connection with domain controller

    I am having problems with 3 of my workstations right now. When the user locks
    the system before they leave in the evening, the next morning, none of their
    shared drives work. They are essentially losing their connectivity or their
    login session with the domain controller. as soon as they logoff and log back
    in again, they work fine. the 4th workstation doesnt have this problem. all
    systems and user accounts are setup exactly the same, just with different
    folder permissions...(clerical, financial, etc...). All accounts are set to
    never expire a session. Does anyone have any suggestions? or at least tell me
    what is causing this. thanks in advance.

    Andy

    Check the event log for errors. Try pinging the server; by name; by ip
    address, etc.

    Thanks, all this checks out. The event log is not showing any errors for
    these users. They can ping the dns name and the IP address fine. The server
    is a domain controller and is running IIS 6.0, DNS and Wins.

    "They are essentially losing their connectivity"

    What happens when they try? What errors are generated?

    "all this checks out"

    Are you checking at the time of the error?

    Re: workstations losing connection with domain controller

    OK, the workstation has an error that says "an error occured while
    reconnecting I: to \\servername\shared folder name...the local device is
    already in use. this connection has not been restored

    the event log shows error event ID 40961, category: SPNEGO (negotiator),
    source: LSASRV

    description:

    The security system could not establish a secured connection with the server
    "server name". No authentication protocol was available.

    I am not sure what this means. thanks in advance for any help

    I contacted Microsoft and have downloaded the hotfix. I will test it today on
    one of my systems. Thanks again.
