RE: The redirector was unable to initialize security contex

Postby JHK » Thu Oct 13, 2005 4:30 pm

I was encountering this problem along with the inability to browse from DomainControllerA to DomainControllerB via the UNC Name. To farther complicate the problem DomainControllerB was having no issue reaching DomainControllerA via UNC name AND the servers were not replicating.

This is what I did to correct the issues:
On DomainControllerB I opened a command prompt and executed the following command:

NETDOM RESETPWD /Server:DomainControllerA /UserD:Domain\AdministratorID /PasswordD:*

This is the OPPOSITE of what is suggested in Microsoft Articles 826902 and 206575, but it resolved all the issues that I was experiencing.

I agree with whomever posted about Time Synching. There is something about domain controllers not being over 5 minutes different from each other. Mine were 9 minutes and I got this message and could not access networks drives. I fix times and reboot servers and it corrects the problem.

Good luck.
