    Re: default computer policy problem

    It does sound like a DNS problem to me. Do you have more than one domain controller and are zone transfers activated?

    run netdiag on the broken clients. It sounds like the secure channel has broken though.

    Re: default computer policy problem

    ok,

    ran the support tools from server disk and came up with this error

    The procedure entry point DnsGetMaxNumberOfAddressToRegister could not belocated in the dynamiclink library DNSAPI.dll." error when running netdiag on XP

    then reinstalled support tools from XP cd as advised on google search and there is no netdiag file in the support tools folder, the download link on microsoft is no longer valid either

    netdiag is only present on the resource kit installation on the windows 2000 server CD.
