Win 2000 Server Time Out

Win 2000 Server Time Out

I am running Win2000 Server on a Dell Power Edge 4300 Server. The server is the domain controller, it has active directory and DNS. I have administrative privilege and sometimes I am not able to log on to the domain. Whenever I restart the server EVERYTHING WORKS.

Re: Win 2000 Server Time Out

Are you unable to logon to the domain from the server or from a PC on the LAN? If from a PC, have you tried another PC? Do you see an error message? Have you installed the latest Service Pack, SP3? You can get it at

Make a great day!
