Error help? "The account name is invalid or does not exist"

I've been able to deploy a simple program to a couple hundred computers. On a subset of maybe 20 computers however, the steps that are not running as the logged on user return an error: "The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified". enter image description here

I've tried existing, new domain admin and local target Admin accounts on the target system but I still get the error.

Is this a PDQ deploy thing or something else I should check?

  • This may have something to do with the netlogon service on those targets. Have you tried reboot them before deploying the package ?

  • Yes, that was it. I was able to restart Netlogon service with PSExec then PDQ was able to connect thereafter. Thank you
