    Hi people,

    yesterday i wiped my NT4 server and replaced with win2k server. Everything was great until we noticed that the three XP pro workstations we have in the office disconnect from the server...the win98 and win2k workstations are fine during this time, its just the XP pro machines that seem to experience these technicalities.
    to get them back i have to disconnect them from the domain back to a workgroup, reeboot, then reconnect to the domain, where they will work fine for a few hours...then just 'drop' off again!!!

    can someone help?

    thanks in advance

    Futher findings show that giving the three win XP machines static IP's result in no problems connecting to the domain server. I have used the 2000 server as the DHCP but i still get the same problem using that too.
