    Any error message or event log errors? Hows DNS in your new location ("nslookup servername")?

    Come-on your like one of the teachers with the sketchy details ;-)

    I would check your IP addresses and make sure you havenít got anything else on the network leasing addresses out.

    Are the clients on the same IP range as the servers?

    So you have tried them on the same IP range as the server?

    What I did fing on ipconfig /all was that these two computers had been given the same name (by a teacher I might add!) when he set them up. I have now changed the name but still have the same unable to lopg onto the domain problem.

    Given that they both had the same computer name when joined to AD the computer account may have been damaged in AD or simply redirected to the last computer joined. I would suggest rejoining the problematic machine to the domain under a different name after of course changing it back to workgroup mode first so that it does not try to update the existing account to the new name.

    Ran out of time today and toward the end of the working day my mind was getting fuzzy but I'll do this. Now ayay from the 2 offending computers suspect that the domain name they had been given might have not been totally correct.

    Thanks for all the help folks.

    Hmmm...

    You must have had the domain name set correctly or it wouldn't have joined?!!
