In windows server 2003 enterprise, recently I encountered a logon problem where when I press ctrl-alt-delete, the logon window would not display. However,after restarting the server, it was resolved. Any feedback on this would be grateful.

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

How long did you wait before you rebooted? Was this problem observed during the first attempt to log in after Win2k3 had been installed? Was the disk thrashing?

    Did the event viewer show errors on that moment?

    There were no one accessing the server for 5 days due to public holiday in our country. The server has been running without such problem until then. I was not able to trace anything in the event viewer for this particular problem. Since we could not logon, the only way is to restart the server.

    On a very rare occation I have run into a simalar problem. I have found out the machine is trying to resolve the domains it is able to log onto. it usually resolves it self but takes a while depending on the state of our network. Other times I have to reboot also. hope this helps
