Logon Unsuccessful: The user name you typed is the same as the user name you logged in with

    Question

  • Windows 2003 domain. I get the following message when using a user with domain admin permissions:
    "Logon Unsuccessful: The user name you typed is the same as the user name you logged in with. That user name has already been tried. A domain controller cannot be found to verify that user name."
    other domain admin level users have no issues (yet?)
    when I try to connect to the same services from same PCs or servers using a different administrator, it is working - I take it as something faulty with the user, not with network connectivity or local PCs
    this is coming and going without any noticeable reason

  • Check whether you have any entries in the Stored User Names and Passwords (Control Panel\User Acconts\Advanced) - if so, remove them and try again...

  • this happen on any domain machine, PCs and servers. it is also a problem on out of domain machines trying to access domain resources using this username's credentials.

    is there a limit to the number of concurrent uses of a single username? (I do work like this for years and never had a problem but worth checking)

    I repeat one main behavioral issue: this is working\not working randomly for X period of time. I'm doing nothing and it is working then after whatever time it stops. that is why I think it might have some limit issues that idle times solve

  • Hello,

    if Marcins suggestion, also described here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306992/en-us, doesn't help, please post an unedited ipconfig /all from the problem workstation and your DC/DNS server so we can exclude DNS as a problem.

  • I experienced the same problem.

    It occured when the same username was logged on at two different computer at the same time, and I tried to log on at a third one.
