I mamange a Windows 2003 Small Business Server Network with 9 clients. The server provides all network services. We use Logon/logoff, shared storage, and print server functions. We do not use exchange except for the server reporting tool. We do use about 4 instances of SQL. All clients are Windows XP Professional patched to current standards.
I continually get an error in the security log about a Service ticket request failed. Event ID is 673. It gives the IP of the machine, the ticket options as 0x2, and the failure code as 0x20. The number of failures can range from 3 to 8 in a day for the machines in question.
After some research, it looks like a ticket expiration problem. However, I only get this error on 3 of the 9 machines constantly. All machines are used every day. Most access a network resource every day. The other machines may generate this error once or twice a month. I am concerned that there is a configuration problem with the 3 machines.
I have followed several basic troubleshooting recommendations from Microsoft KB and a few other sources. Nothing helps or describes to me the difference between the 3 machines and the rest.
Any recommendations for either fixing or understanding the difference in the error reports? Thanks for the help.
