This is a local charity that I support in my spare (non-existant!) time.
I'm offsite at the moment, but received this message...

"When Cath tried to logon today she got this message:

There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon

I have done a small experiment, I can logon as Dawn or Bill on Bill's
computer and switch between them but I can't logon as Cath  (get the
lack of trust message). On Cath's computer I can't logon as anyone.  On
Bill's computer I logged in as Bill then went to Dawn's computer and
tried to logon as Dawn and got the no logon servers message."

How on earth has a simple domain been working ok for years, and now end
up in this mess?

Is there a simple way to just reset the server-side information so
everyone starts with a clean sheet?
