    Restoring network connections

    Hi guys and thanks for contiune support

    When the school network was set up, there are two shared areas that are made available from the curriculum server running Windows 2008 R2 standard to Admin server running Windows 2003 R2. But recently, I asked an engineer to do some work on the networks and he must have made some changes which his denied because since after his work on our systems, these shared areas no longer work for admin staff. They can still the shared areas but with big red cross over them and any time they click any of the shared areas, they get the attached error message saying: "there are currently no logon servers available to service the logon requested...... This connection has not been restored."

    Please help.

    Thanks, Tushan

    Hey Tushan, are these two separate domains (Curriculum and Admin) ?

    Sounds like you may have an issue with the domain trust if so - see here: Troubleshooting Active Directory Domains and Trusts

    Hi Domino, and thanks for your advice. Both admin and curriculum are two separate Domain but established trust relashionship between them which has been working until recently when changes were made in my absence.

    I've tried the link you kindly sent but what I don't understand is whether I needed to validate the relationships on both Domains. On the curriculum server, when i tried to validate, it came up with the error message saying: Windows cannot find an active directory Domain controller for adminkng.local domain. verify that AD DC is available and try again. But when I did it on the Admin server, it seems to validate, but still when I tested it on a local machine, it did work.

    Any more suggesttions please.

    Kind regards

    Tushan

    There may be a DNS issue between the domains - can they resolve server names between domains?

    If it works it might be try recreating the trust

    They both resolve server names. But when I tried the full server name, eg server.curriculum.local, The admin did resolve it but the curriculum didn't. It came with the error saying can't find the the name.... Perhaps, I should just recreate the trusts as you suggested.

    Kind regards
