Hi Matias,


This problem occurs because the Windows 2000-based server rejects your
logon password when the client computer does not correctly de-allocate an
internal structure that is used to track the logon session. The client
attempts to reuse the expired encryption key that is passed to it by the
server during the original logon.

This problem does not occur in conjunction with Microsoft Windows NT-based
clients because the client does not attempt to use Distributed File System
(DFS) because the session that is reused is against a DFS referral from the
Windows 95-based or Windows 98-based client.

A supported fix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to
correct the problem that is described in this article. Apply it only to
computers that are experiencing this specific problem.

To resolve this problem, contact Microsoft Product Support Services to
obtain the fix. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services
