    I have 1 DC running SBS Windows 2000 Server and 32 client computers. Yesterday, 3 Windows 98 client computers and 2 XP clients’ computers lose their connection with Server.

    -Windows 98 could not log on when prompt to enter user name and password:
    “Domain password you supply is not correct, or access to your logon server has been denied.”

    -Windows XP: Log on OK at local computer but when it try to access the map drive on Server:
    \\Server\<share folder is not accessible. you might not have permission to use net share resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions Network path was not found.

    The only way that I seem to be able to get around it is by uninstall and reinstall WINS server, this fix the problem: all 98 and XP machine work as normal.
    But it works for about 10 hours and problem come back again. I have to do the same thing again and again to fix the problem when it comes back. The weird thing is WinXP was effected by WINS too.

    I did scanned for virus; No error in event viewer, DHCP, DNS and WINS is install on the same Server and function, all client could ping Server OK. I can browse all client PC from Server.

    Any idea? Would you please helping me to fix this problem.
