Here it goes:
1) Created a computer account for a W2K member server in my W2K domain controller.
2) Went to the member server and changed the network identificatioto point to my W2K, AD and was prompted for a username and password to add the member server no error messages!
3) When I tried to access the C$ on the member server from the domain controller, I get an error that states “Logon failure: The user has not been granted the request logon type at this computer”
4) However, when I type \\DC\c$ from the member server I get in no problem!
5) I went in the member server local security policy and confirmed that the administrator account from the DC has “access to this computer from the network” rights, as a matter of fact the everyone group has that right!
One more thing that I noticed is when I am at the DC and want to assign rights to a user for example “Access this computer from the network”, from the drop down menu I can select “entire directory” or “mydomain.local”. However, when I am sitting at the member server and select “add” user or group I can see 3 options “Entire Directory”, “mydomain.local” and “Mydomain” this I believe it would be the netbios name for my AD?
then how come that name does not show up on the DC?
I am sorry if I don’t make sense but this thing is very weird!
I added the IP from the DC into the “Preferred DNS” name on the member server.
I just wanted to configure this machine as a member server, install some services like DHCP, WINS and DNS and later configure it as a DC for redundancy purposes.
This is my first time working with AD and I don’t have any group policies in place yet because I am learning as I go.
Do yu think that because I have not implemented GPOs could be that the problem?
BTW: I am signed on as the domain admin on both machines.
Thank you for your time!
