Sharing Cdrive on 98 w/s logged onto NT4

By matthew_morgan ·
Whilst trying to share a Cdrive on a 98 machine, I get 'cannot view a list of user at this time ' error.
Logging on to NT domain etc
Tried all the obvious:-
File and printer sharing- installed, LM announce yes and No, deleting and reinstalling TC/IP and Netbui etc.
I am logging on as administrator, there are no policies inplace, and other machines on the network all work fine.
Any Ideas ??

Sharing Cdrive on 98 w/s logged onto NT4

i don't have alot of experience with nt domains, but if you are doin netbui, would you have to setup lmhosts.sam? i'm not sure exactly what the file is for - maybe its just an alternate wins resolution. in any case, here is the leading paragraph in the file...

# Copyright (c) 1998 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample LMHOSTS file used by the Microsoft Wins Client (NetBios
# over TCP/IP) stack for Windows98
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to NT computernames
# (NetBIOS) names. Each entry should be kept on an individual line.
# The IP address should be placed in the first column followed by the
# corresponding computername. The address and the comptername
# should be separated by at least one space or tab. The "#" character
# is generally used to denote the start of a comment (see the exceptions
# below).

First, if you are using TCP/IP as your protocol, get rid of NetBEUI. It will only add confusion. Are you getting the error trying to share the C drive, or trying to connect to the C drive over the network? If it is the latter, then try using an LMHOSTS file in the c:\windows directory. Create a file called LMHOSTS (no extension) and put the following in it:

www.xxx.yyy.zzz MyNetBIOSName #PRE

Where www.xxx.yyy.zzz is the IP address of the computer you are trying to connect to and "MyNetBIOSName" is the name of the computer that you are trying to connect to. Also, try to ping the remote computer. If you don't get a response, then your computer is not talking to the other computer. Could be caused by a faulty NIC, bad cabling,bad hub/switch, or miscommunication between protocols.

Do you have the NT Administration Utilities for Windows 9x installed ?
If so get rid of them and try it again.
If that works, Install them into a directory in a new directory. Then both "User level access" and the admin. utilities should work.

Thanks.....Jeremy

If you look in your network properties then look and properties of the file-print sharing you will see user lever access or shar level access. Be sure the select user level access then be sure that they proper domain name is listed as the source for security information. For other reasons I would get rid of the netbui and go tcp/ip only. The only other thing I would be sure to verify is that you have proper name resolution either through WINS or as a last ditch via hosts or lmhosts files.
