Problems with share access

By sim.hong ·
Have numerous Win2K Pro Sp4 PC's connected into one domain. Some can be logged unto from the network neighborhood but a few cannot. Gives me an error message saying 'access rights have not been set'. Every one of them I have setup 'sharing' exactly the same with 'file and printer sharing' loaded. Why then can't I access the few? Can anyone help me out with any ideas on this?

I have never seen this error message. A couple of things I would try:

Make sure the computers have successfully been added to the domain by checking ADUC on your server, and also the computername in the Network Identification tab (right-click My Computer select Properties). It should be or .local or whatever.

Next, I would make sure that domain accounts have been added to each local computer. Normally, you are given the option to do this when the computer is initially joined to the domain but it can be skipped.

Make sure the default shares are set up for C$.

Have you tried logging on as the local administrator and then adding accounts? Also, check the event logs and see if there are any specific events generated. If there are can you post them?

If this does not help, or if you post the events, reject this answer.

Good luck

If these machines are truly in a domain, check the settings in the GPO's for "access this computer from the network."

Make sure the machines are members of the domain. Double check the user permissions. Is this a peer to peer network or is there a domain controller??? If PTP then you have to have the same workgroup name and also have the guest acct enabled. Also check you local security policy and make sure the access this computer from the network is config properly.
