\\computer_name is not accessible

By kashmeir63 ·
Hi have a windows nt4.o server on a network. For some reason I'am not able to access it from the network. When I try to I get the following \\computer_name is not accessible----Logon failure the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer...
In the past I had no problems.
The user rights are okay on the computer. Nothing has changed. No one has access to the computer but me. Any help would be appreciated..

Several things here:
1) Do you have a domain setup correctly? Are the workstations configured to log into the domain/workgroup(for Win9x)?
2) Do you have WINS installed on the server? Verify by checking services for Windows INternet Name Service. YOu must use WINS for NT and pre-Windows2000 workstations.
3) Be sure clients are configured to use/accept WINS. Be sure clients are pointing to WINS server within TCP/IP properties.
4) Test for #3 is can you ping server by name from workstations?5) If nothing else works, do an lmhost lookup and hardcode the IP address and name within lmhosts. Enable lmhosts through IP protocol settings checkbox.
6) If this is a WINS server, then be sure it's pointing to itself within the WINS properties under "primary" and "secondary". Do this only if this is a WINS server. If not, then be sure new server is pointing to the primary WINS server on the network at least.

The above fixes 95% of my problems with NT server connectivity.

If "nothing" has changed, then the first thing i will check will be the NT 4 server. Go to the Admin tools, and then User manager for domains. make sure under Rights, your account has permissions to "access this computer from network". The very second thing, you must have a "Share" on the computer to connect to. If there is not :Share:, you wont be connected, even if you are the Domain admin.
