I've got 2 servers running win 2003 server,1 is a dc and the other one is a file server where all users store their files,I've mapped every user to a specific folder on the file server and have mapped thier drives,everything have been working fine but all of a sudden some users keep getting disconneccting, when i try to remap the drive i get an error saying "Logon failure: The target account name is incorrect." I can map some using ther server ip.The only thing that was changed was that a program runnung sql was installed on the dc but it still worked fine after that was done.Please help

Did you use "ping" to check the network connection between those users's pcs and server?

Have you solved this issue yet or are you still having it ? There are a number of reasons why this can be happening so if you are still having issues then we can go through them.
