They are logged in between 2 and 6 hours.
Ive checked the lifetime with kertray, and the ticket expires at night (9pm or 10pm).
Liftetime settings in AD is 10 hours, renew until 7 days in the future.

The only ticked cached was the krbtgt ticked of the domain and the ticket for the machine itself.

Matthias,

how long is the user logged in on the machine and what are the ticket lifetime settings in AD ? Before you lock and unlock the PC can you check with kerbtray the tickets in the ticket cache ? They may be expired and some application (e.g. IE) can not trigger a ticket renew, but a lock and unlock triggers a ticket renew.

Hello,

I havent managed to grep a useful packet capture yet.

But ive noticed something:

Right after the users get the auth box, they can lock their computer, login again, and the problem is gone?
They get a new krbtgt-ticket, and all is running fine for some time.

Hi Matthias,

Honestly the best way to determine what's going on is to get a packet capture and do a network analysis. The problem with that is that clients cache both positive and negative Kerberos ticket request results so you basically have to reboot the client, start the capture, launch IE, try the page and if it fails restart the browser and if it then succeeds stop the capture. If it doesn't fail or if it doesn't succeed after failing you won't have to two conditions you need to compare and you have no choice but to reboot the client and repeat.

But if you do get a capture like that I'll look at it. Can't guarantee I'll find anything but I'm always interested in these sorts of failure conditions.

There is a decription of getting a capture with netcap.exe in the appendix of that document I pointed you to before.

Also, you might try to get this patch:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/885887

It does sound remotely like what you're seeing and some people have had success with it when experiencing unreliable behavior like you're describing.

Mike
