Sometimes logons on trusted domains are very slow or doesnt work. So i have searched and searched. I have turned one windows xp client after one off. I have found three Windows XP Computer that makes troubles. If this three Windows XP Clients are online, than trusted domain logins doesnt work! I have formated those Computers and reinstalled Windows XP, now it works. So is there a way to manipulate the "OS Level" of Windows? And why got a Windows XP Pro client Domain Logon Requests? Strange...

I have experienced something like that.

One day ONE Windows XP wrongly configured (workgroup instead of domain
member) took the place of the PDC. Lots of bad things started to
happen. For example, we couldn't add machines to the domain, etc. We
have to shutdown every workstation and the server.

domain logons = yes


PS: fix your email client.
