    Hi everybody

    1 An Active Directory (AD) have numerous Registered Users (RU) to the Domain (DM) using Server 03 SP2.
    2 Numerous PC running XPWin SP2 had joined the Domain and appears as PCs in the AD User / Computer dialog at the Server.
    3 Numerous Shared Folders (SFd) in the Server are created to allow RU access.
    4 When a RU logon to the DM from one the the PC, after entering the his password, RU can access all SFd without further request for password; ...this had been so for many years running.

    After a power failure, RU can still logon to the DM BUT...
    1 To access the SFd, User password (PWd) will be asked.
    2 After a number of tries of knocking with the PWd, RU can then access the SFd. In certain PC, a different UserName with password had to done to access the SFd.
    3 Also on restarting the Server and the running PCs, the problem of of PWd reappear.

    1 Pinging with the TCP/IP address among all the PCs and server in both in/out has no problem at all.
    2 One of the PC attached to another Switch don't seem to have this problem.

    1 How to check what's happening? What is the normal process during the a) DM authentication b) Authentication of the Shared folders in the server?
    2 How to solve this without rejoining the DM? Is resharing the folders in the DM the solution?

    THANKS in Advance
