Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect

Hi everyone

Today I stumbled into a bug;

From a DC to another DC when I try to naviguate to the server fileshare I got that error;

Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect

I checked the DNS’s console, and from the faulty DC the console don’t open too.

After checking all around, the DFS is dead, the server is no more responding to anything and oh well, it’s tombstone.


At that point first thing I did is;

net stop kdc

After that a netdom;

netdom reset passwd /Server:DC2 /UserD:domain\administrator /PasswordD:*

netdom reset passwd /Server:DC2 /UserD:domain\administrator /PasswordD:*

Type the password associated with the domain user:
The machine account password for the local machine has been successfully reset.
The command completed successfully.

I did a restart, now the DNS’s console open, but I still got a account error, thus I run the netdom against the other DC as well, another restart and voila! It work as expected !
