hi all,
My win2k server is my dns, DHCP and AD.

all of a sudden i cannot access my AD users and computers and i get this error message:
error.jpg

all my users are working fine, dns seems fine coz all the users can log on their AD accounts and lease IPs from the DHCP

i googled this around and all i found was stuff about tcp/ip filtering and that i should permit all. but that option is not enabled already on my tcp/ip.

i can't seem to find any workarounds for this.
any help would be appreciated.

thanks in advnace :)

Hello again, joe_azer and thank you for your understanding and continued patience.

I see that on the Windows 2000 Service site that there are updates, such as SP4, that are currently available. With that in mind I was wondering if any updates, either automatic or manual, been done to the server in the few days leading up to you receiving this error?

Hello joe_azer, please go to the Windows 2000 Service site and update your server to SP4. After that update, restart all users and attempt to locate the AD computers. Please reply with your findings.
