  • Is this for Small Business Server or just Server 2003?

    This a Small Business Server forum, but either way the error is often the result of misconfigfured DNS (can't resolve the Domain Name, can't find a Domain Controller) or network connectivity to a DNS server or domain controller.

     

    post an ipconfig /all

  • Hello,

     

    Thanks for your post.

     

    I am with Kevin that it is possible a misconfiguration of DNS or network connectivity issue. Please run Ipconfig /all and check all items are correct. Also make sure you can resolve the DNS server. If it is SBS server, restart Net Logon service on it. If the issue persists, please go to Event Viewer and past more Event log information if any.

     

    Hope it helps.

     

    Thanks,
