Cannot login to network Server

    General discussion

  • Peer to peer network.
    Windows 2000 station is the server.
    Other stations XP or Vista.
    Before, once in while one station could not login to the server It said invalid user name or password.
    I changed the password on stations and the server for the user called user. Now a lot of the stations cannot login to the server. Some can login to the server.
    Please help me.
    Thank you,

  • Hi,

    Current information is not enough, please help to collect the following information for research.

    1.    Are all users and clients in Domain?
    2.    What are the server roles of Windows 2000?
    3.    What services are the users/stations trying to access when the error occurs?
    4.    On Windows 2000, check Event Log, find related logs and let us know the detailed error message.
    5.    Please capture Network monitor traffic for troubleshooting.
    Download and install Microsoft Network Monitor 3.3:

    Or Download and install Wireshark.

    Run it and start capture. Try to visit the server from a problematic client and stop capture when the error occurs. Save the capture file and use Windows Live SkyDrive ( to upload the file and then give me the download address.
