BXP Machines can't connect

by drewknight / August 6, 2008 9:59 PM PDT

I have a question concerning logging into network user accounts via a BXP Machine. I am currently setting up a computer lab, and am having trouble accessing network accounts.

My BXP image loads, however, I can only log into the local user account and not the network accounts. Once in the local user account, I can access the internet. Since the BXP image loads and I can access the internet, I know that the network card is working fine - I just don't understand why I can't connect to my network user accounts. I have checked my hardware, and the device "BXP SCSI Miniport Virtual Adapter" is installed.

I get this error when I attempt to log into a network account:
"Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. If this message continues to appear, contact your system administrator for assistance."

I know that the account works, so I assume the problem is that the domain controller is down?

'I know that the account works,'...Are The Computers New?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / August 7, 2008 3:23 AM PDT

How do you know the computer account works? If the computers are new and have a new "computer name", and if the network security requires each computer to be added to the network by a network administrator, then you'll need to have admin perform that service before the computer will be recognized by the network..

Hope this helps.
