    Frequent server synchronization errors?

    Frequent server synchronization errors?

    24 port Linksys SR244 and 4124. 2 each. Oh and I found out the hard way that you can't plug in two link cables from 1 switch another switch. Causes bad lockup. lol I already knew that but I didn't close enough attention to the cable I plugged in. Lesson learned.

    UPDATE ON THE ISSUE: I keep getting these two errors on a daily every other hour basis in ISA2004. I have checked the DNS event viewer and have found nothing alarming on hubdc1? What I have noticed is that every couple hours the Connectivity window on the Dashboard will report no connectivity...

    Frequent server synchronization errors?

    Are you referring specifically to mapped drives? Because our servers that host files all have static IPs already. It seems to be more a situation of losing connection to those mapped drives. pardon my ignorance, but how does one change the hosts file? Are you referring to the LMHOSTS file...
