    Good morning to you all,

    I've bought a new HP notebook with Windows Vista business edition and I have faced a problem, which is not exactly critical but it will be good if I can fix it.

    Here is the situation. We have running active directory over a Server 2003. I'm a domain member and I'd joined the notebook onto the domain. The first two months everything was just fine, but since the past week, when I try to log on Vista says the following :
    You cannot log on, because the Credential Management Server doesn't work properly or it is not installed on the target server. (this is not the exact text but it is with the same meaning).

    After that I need to click on the log on Wizard button and I to mark the 'Do not use Credential Management Server' option.

    What I need is to turn off this Credential Management, because on the domain controler there is no CMS installed and this is just freaking me out. Can someone help me with this?
    I have read some articles but I couldn't find anything useful about my problem.

    Thanks in advance


    Meto

    log on to the computer's local domain as administrator (not onto the network)

    goto

    control panel -> HP ProtectTools Security Manager -> Credential Manager


    inside there is a check box that says use credential manager to logon .... or something similar to that. uncheck it. hit ok. restart the machine.

    try to login again. I did this and it logged right on after I restarted.
