0x800704DD -2147023651 Error_Not_Logged_On to network
Nope.. but somebody reconfiguring something in Group Policy that affects all
of your machines simultaneously would be a good consideration.
The 0x800704DD (Not Logged On) error might be caused by having changed the
LogOn account for the Automatic Updates service. It might also be caused by
an intervening proxy server.
It might also be caused by a computer account with an expired password that
did not get auto-regenerated, although given that a number of systems are
simultaneously affected, this option seems less likely; however, it's
possible the entire collection of Windows 2000 computer accounts were
affected simultaneously. It could also happen if the OU containing these
Windows 2000 accounts were deleted from AD, making it impossible for the
computer to authenticate with the computer account. You might try using the
"Reset Account" option in ADUC on the computer accounts after verifying the
accounts still exist.
