Retrieving info from a workgroup Server

By mckenziekirstya ·

I have an application that tries to retrive information from a server in a workgroup from a computer in an AD Domain. It fails when trying to retrieve the information. The vendor has told me it is a problem with the computer. Can anyone think of seomething I can look at, perhaps some network settings? or a policy or service?

Sure, can you tell us the application to further assist you?

If the application is ran from a pc or server with domain admin rights and the computer you are trying to access is on the domain, there is no issues.

If you are on a domain trying to access a non-domain (workgroup), you must first log into that system remotely as an admin (i.e. \\\c$ or \\\ipc$) - put in administartor and passowrd.. then it will pull. But that is very basic. Would help to know the exact application to go into a better solution.

According to me you will have to login as machine\admin (i.e. admin of that particular system)then only will it be possible for a domain system to retrieve some information from a system in workgroup.
