Can't see or map shared files

By al_alonzo ·
I am attempting to log on or map a drive from our PDC to member server. It appears that I can see the server name(in the MAP NETWORK DRIVE diolog box) but when I select it the it gives me the "incorrect password or user name" diolog box allowing me to enter a name and password. I've tried all the name and passwords combinations.

On this PDC I can see other servers and thier shared folders.

I haved shared all 3 drive letters in the member server and gave permissions to Administrator and Everyone group.

Why can't I see the drives in the member server from the PDC?
Is there a service I can check on the member server?

Don't forget "security" of the folders themselves, in addition to the "permissions" of the share. Can you see the drives by typing \\servername\c$ or D$ in the address field of that server? If you get the same error once again make sure security isset with the proper authority, not just a share permission.

Permissions on folders are set to Admin.

I can see the drives locally through windows explorer at this server. (In Explorer)Right clicking the drive then selecting properties I have checked the security tab, it's set to C$ w/ max users allowed. In sharing tab I have allowed Admin, everyoneand guest rights to use this share. I still can't see this share from the PDC.

More Info:
1.My attempt mapping \\servername\C$ to the member server.
2.I'm logged in as Administrator at the PDC.
3.I enter the
Share: \\servername\C$
user: Administrator
Password: (Admin Password to that domain controller)

Error message when trying to map form the PDC to the member server: "Login Failure: The user has not been granted the requested login type at this computer."

Another thing that you can try is (now I'm doing this from memory) Click on My Computer icon
then right click the drive (c,d.) highlight,
right click, then select properties, then
select the sharing tab if the Share AS is
selected and share name displays as C$ and
comment displays "Default Share". Click on
the New Share Button and create a new share
can be the same drive letter but without the $
sign in front. Then set the permissions. If you
do not want everyone accessing the drive, then
select Domain Admins, and Administrators as
the primary users of the drive. Then within
the same directory select a folder that you want
your users to use say CompGobal and make that
directory shared with the Everyone selected or
theGroups that you have assigned. Once the
directory is shared, go to into the Network
Neighboorhood on A PC look for the server, click
on the server name and it will display the shared
directory, then just right click and select
map network drive. Hope this helps.

All shares ending with $ are hidden shares. You can connect to them (when you know the name) but you can't "see" them.
"not allowed this type of login" means that a user probable has the right to logon locally, but not to access the computer from the network. Check your security settings in Usermanager / Policies..
