    Dns issue.

    I had same problem.

    It was our dns server that was messed up.

    I set up dns on a vm and pointed the macs to use the new server for dns and the macs now work fine

    We put our macs on static IP's reserved in DHCP. That fixed a fair few odd occurances.

    It means they always have the right DNS entry, they don't seem to update that correctly if on dynamic DHCP.

    Sounds like some of you are describing the sorts of issues you will get if you use Macs on a .local domain...

    Have you got them attached to a mac server aswell? or are they just simple connecting to AD?

    our network team seems to have resolved the issue where there was a conflict on the domain with the two macs had the same name - this was changed and problems hasnt reoccured.
