Yesterday i was assigned to reinstall a primary domain controller because the computer just died. Honestly, i have no experience on it, but i managed to reinstall and configure the new Win2K3 installation as a virtual machine, with the 'same' configuration as before (same domain, etc). I recreated the users in AD, and they can now log in again.
We have a problem with shared resources: no user can access them (folders, printers, etc). I re-joined one test virtual machine to the domain, and worked fine. ¿Do i have to re-join all workstations in the domain?
Note: i didn't recreate the computers in ad, just the users.
Note2: if this info adds help, in some pcs we're getting a message saying that windows xp could not update the credentials. It asks to block the session and un-block it, but the problem isn't gone.
Can anyone point me in the direction to find the solution for this?
UPDATE: 2009/08/11 Here´s the link to the page i used to relocate the new user's profile folder (once i re-joined them to the domain) to the old user folder (the one that contains all the data and configuration for each one): http://windowsxp.mvps.org/userpath.htm
Be sure to check permissions on them, because in one of the workstations, xp kept creating a new user profile folder for the user, no matter how many times i relocated the profile. It cannot be accesed due ACL, so a new folder were created.
