When you open the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in on a client computer, you receive:
The target principal name is incorrect.
If you run Dcdiag, you receive:
* Connecting to directory service on server <ServerName>.
\[<ServerName>\] LDAP bind failed with error 31.
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
This behavior is symptomatic of a broken secure channel between the local computer and its domain controller.
To fix the problem:
1. Open a CMD.EXE prompt.
2. Type the following commands, pressing Enter after is one:
netdom reset <ComputerName> /domain:<DomainName>
NOTE: <DomainName> is replaced with the name of your domain, and <ComputerName> is replaced by the name of your local computer.
