    I run a windows 2003 server. I have about 10 computers connected to the network. Everything was working great, until I took a vacation. When I came back one of the computers could not connect to the network. Everytime I try to go to the network I get the message "\\servername is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions." I have not changed anything with the server. I have tried disabling the firewall on the computer that cannot connect. I reformatted the computer and the message still appears. Does anyone have any ideas?

    It may have been dropped from the domain, happens from time to time. Try removing it from the domain and readding it.

    Remove the machine from the domain and join to a workgroup. Go into AD and reset the computer account.
    On the workstation run new sid (Google Sysinternals) and then rejoin to the Domain.
