We had a problem that was easy to fix, but hard to discover. We setup a new tree named after the company -- <mycompany>. We had one laptop that could not login to the company. We tried everything. We could not get it to login to the new tree, but could get it to login to any other tree. (Had several in test labs). OS did not matter. Only the new tree. It could see the tree but none of its contexts. Login would say it could not see the tree or server.

SOLUTION: Found out that the computer was named <mycompany> -- EXACTLY what the new tree was named. Never had that one before. Of course, who likes their company that much?
