Locked

Workgroup Member Can't Logon

By Bill in Dallas ·
Two Win2K machines in workgroup. Same user names and same passwords in both. Users part of Administrators group on both machines. Prior to last week, PC A could access PC B with no problem. Somebody switched something.

When trying to connect fromPC A to PC B, we get "\\PC B not accessible. Logon Failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at the computer."

Drive shared to everyone-Full Access (stupid I know). NTFS set to Everyone Full Access. PC A can see PC B and vice versa. PC B can access PC A with no problem. Both can access the Internet OK. PC A can ping PC B.

What could they have done to screw up a workgroup like this?

HELP!

make sure that the PC a Account's password is the same one both machine. If they changed their password on the computer , you must change the password on the computer b also. You can set premissions for the user : can not change passowrd , now you will not get into this problem.

user a has had to has changed the password localy on computer A set the password on computer b the same and the problem will be corrected.

Again, passwords are identical on both machines. Thanks for the reply though.

Win2K can also be set to require a secure remote logon. You check that on PC B.

After two hours on the phone with Microsoft Support, we discovered that someone had changed the Group Policies and we had to rebuild them. That allowed access to the computer.

Now I must sign off and begin locking down this PC from inquisitive users!
