Kerberos Client Errors with Remote Login

A friend has asked me if I could resolve a problem he has with his small office network. He has a server running Windows 2003 Small Business Server and two clients PC's using XP. He has a fax program on one of the clients that he used to route his information from the server from to the client as the server does not have a built in modem. It used to work fine but after installing updates approx 8 months, he has to print out reports and fax them manually. I have logged into the server remotely and noticed in the event log he is getting lots of kerberos errors, the message being: The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server ACER-WS1$. The target name used was cifs/Acer-ws1. This indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server. Commonly, this is due to identically named machine accounts in the target realm, and the client realm. Please contact your system administrator. Also when I try and explore the client from the server in Microsoft networks I get the error: Acer-ws1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have permission. Logon failure: The target account name is incorrect. I am logged in as administrator and I can ping the client by name and IP. I have looked into kerberos online and understand it is an authentication service, but I am not too sure where to look to fin
d the names that are held within the kerberos service.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It sounds like there may be an issue with the client object in AD. I would suggest removing the computer object, move the workstation to a workgroup and then re-add to the domain.
