Troubleshooting Event ID 3210 and 1000

This error was reported to me by an user,

After login with a Local Account, I’ve collected this information from event viewer.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event ID: 1000
Time: 22:05:55
Description: Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. Return value (1326).

The next error appears in all domain controllers.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: NETLOGON
Event ID: 3210
Time: 8:36:36
User: N/A
Description: Failed to authenticate with \\, a Windows NT orWindows 2000 domain controller for domain XXXXXXX.

To solve this issue we have two options:

1 – Remove server from domain and Add it again.


2 – Reset secure channel using Netdom.exe, and check using nltest.exe

NETDOM reset ‘machinename’ /domain:’domainname

NETDOM VERIFY machine /Domain:domain [UserO:user] [/PasswordO:[password | *]]
