    Logging on to a domain

    Locked

    by milesrrs ·

    Hi
    hope somebody can help. I have a W2K server set up as a DC. I also have a machine with both Win98SE and W2kProf on it. While running W2K everything is fine, however when i try to set up 98 to log into the domain i have someproblems. Mainly, i check the Log into an NT domain in 98 and the W2k server validates the password, and i can access all the resources on the server from the 98 client. However the 98 machine is still shown in network neighborhood as being part of a workgroup and therefore i cannot access any of the shares FROM the W2k server machine, I am running DHCP and DNS and they appear to be working properly.
    So how do i stop the 98 machine being part of a workgroup and actually join the domain rather than just using the W2K machine to validate the passwords???

      Win98 can validate on NT and recieve the users list from NT but CANNOT be added to the Domain…On the Win2K machine your Win98 client will show up in Network Neihgborhood and by clicking it you should be able to access the shares if you have Permission . Just incase the problem is that the Win98 machine is not listed in Net Neighborhood of the Win2K you can Go to Start Menu / Find / Computer and type the name of the Win98 Client and press find ..after you’ve successfully found the computer , go to Net Neighborhood and check if the computer is listed if not press refresh a few times and you’ll see it listed .

      Also please check if you’ve shared the resources and that you have set the permissions correctly on the Win98 Client ..

      Good Luck !!!!

      OK guys
      so by changing the name of the workgroup to the same name as the netbios domain name, both machines now show up in network neighborhood.
      I have the 98 machine in share level access control, however when i double click on the 98 machine icon in net neighborhood, i get a ‘not authorised to log on from this station’ —– HELP

      If you have a static IP, take it out and use DHCP assigned IP on the 98 machine…Other alt is to delete it from the DNS server and let it find it again, or force it into DNS by adding the entry into DNS…

      Hi Miles,

      Assuming you can’t reach your 98 machine from
      an NT/W2k box, I would check the share
      permissions on your 98 folders and see if the
      sharename permissions are set, and if correct
      password is used.
