XP to Win2003 Server Connection problem

By jdieffenbacher ·
One DC domain, 3 XP profesional computers. DC was set up by former admin that screwed up a bunch of things, he never got the computer joined to the domain properly. I got 2 of the computers joined, networked, sharing files fine. One machine (the boss's of course) is the problem. I can copy, paste, put, get files FROM the domain controller (also serves as file server) but I cannot GET files from this XP computer from any other machine on the domain. WinExplorer finds the computer but when you try and connect, get "you don't have permissions" error. No event log info. I have rejoined the domain, renamed the computer, renamed the computer AND rejoined the domain. Still same problem. Suggestions?? (besides reinstalling XP).

I turned on/off/on/off the firewalls on both of the computers. No effect.

You need to add the connecting username(s) and password(s)to the list on XP?

To what list? This computer is part of a domain.

Where are the files you are trying to get on the user's PC?
Havew you checked NTFS permissions on the folders on the PC you are getting files from?
Does the PC have shares set up? Have you checked permissions for those shares?

I have shared folders on the XP computer but the main problem is that I cannot browse to the computer AT ALL from any other station on the domain. The DC or the other office machines cannot open the computer at all with Windows Explorer. Therefore, besides the fact that I cannot get files, I cannot back it up either.

To make it easier, open Computer Management console and add the various AD accounts to the Administrators (Domain Admins should be listed) and Backup Operator groups.

Did it but did not do any good.
