The error message states its unable to bind to domain name so

1) we need to verify that we are able to access Share on the SBS specially Sysvol and netlogon share from the client

2) the time Difference between the Server and Clients is plus minus 5 minutes not more

3)The Server is advertising itself as a Time Server In Dcdiag

4) Make sure the Binding order of the Network Interface cards is Correct

5) Start -> Run -> "control keymgr.dll" remove any entries that you have for cached Domain passwords

6) Gpupdate /force log off and relogin



happens most of the time due to invalid cache domain password being used for authentication mostly when it come to laptops
