Strange keyboard problem after network logon.

Hi, I have this strange issue of keyboards not working after logon to Win2003 servers, SP1, from WinXP and Win2K clients. I have determined that it is not the clients. If logging on to clients under administrator or simply unplugging the cat 5 cable, the keyboards work fine. This only happens after login. But, then the keyboards start working 5 to 10 minutes later. To complicate the problem...This only happens when a user changes workstations, a new user is added, or a new XP system is brought up. Users who have been at their existing workstations for some time (like myself) do not have the keyboard issue after logon. However, if I was to logon to a different XP box, I'll have the keyboard problem. This only happens after logon to network. Has anyone seen anything like this before? It just started happening within the last two weeks. Thanks

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

Only general advice…

1) Have you put a sniffer on the port to see if there is any traffic that might correspond?

2) Get the utilities regmon, filemon, and process monitor from microsoft technet/sysinternals (or just www.sysinternals.com) and monitor all activity through that problem.

Anyone who has read many of my posts will know that I keep referring to those utilities – reason being that once you learn to filter out what’s irrelevant, they have solved many, many problems that would otherwise have taken far longer, or not been solveable at all.

Good luck,

Bob
