    I would really appreciate any suggestions. My problem is that all of a sudden Windows 98 client computers are not able to log on to the network. This occurred the week after a power outage and the server was off for a few days. After I brought the server back online most computers could log in. But some got this error message:

    No domain server was available to validate your password. You may not be able to gain access to some network resources.

    I have checked all the cables and hubs, this doesn't seem to be a hardware problem. I have surfed the net about this problem but the only solution I have been able to find is off of the Microsoft website and it only applies to Windows 95 clients.

    Thank you in advance,
    Tekgyrl

    you may need to delete the password on win98. this may help, quoted from http://www.chicagotech.net/noserveravailable.htm
    "No logon server available"

    Symptoms: you can ping the server by ip and name but can't map the shared drive by using net use \\ip or \\servername. If you try, you may receive the "No logon server available".

    Resolutions: This sounds like cache credential issue. 1) make sure the computers in the same network, the same workgroup/domain and have created the same username. 2) use net to cache the credential. 3) The user profiles may been damaged.
