Active Directory Shares, How to connect

By jtew ·
I'm running into a setup up issue that I think it common to find. My problem is that I don't know how to fix it.
All of our MS Windows servers run in one domain, and the workstation are not connected to that domain. How do I get the non ad clients (MS WIN) to connect to the active directory shares on the domain. With out creating local usernames and passwords on each server.

Password changes

This work but everytime we change passwords we have to go to each client and change the password there as well. Occasionally with no reason at all windows will drop the stored password

If your PC's are running in a different domain just create a trust between your PC domain and your server domain. Then just set the proper permissions on your servers for your PC domain.

The PC's are not in a domain, A domain would require a domain controller, the pc's are all standalone in a workgroup, but not a domain.

Connection of shares

I don't really understand the problem, when you connect a domain share you just specify credentials of the domain. If your problem with this is that the password is not encrypted, just use fasttrack to do. Use an fsh script, see Maybe you should use ip tables instead, you can do this with fasttrack too.
