I am using VMware Player (4.0.4 build-744019) hosted in Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit to open a Windows XP Pro virtual machine. Lately, when I try to log on to Windows XP, I get the following Logon Message:
Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. If this message continues to appear, contact your system administrator for assistance.
Eventually I am able to log on by changing the Virtual Machine's Network Adapter settings (from Bridged to NAT or vice-versa). Just waiting and retrying later by itself doesn't seem to work.
After changing the network adapter settings back and forth a few times (or many times), it finally log's me on, but it seems to be taking longer and longer to log on each day.
Any ideas on what could have changed (since this used to not happen) and how to fix this are greatly appreciated.
