Win98 cannot login to W2K Server

By itpro ·
I just setup a new Win2K Server w/AD, all the WinXP Pro can login correctly,
but all the Win98, Win98 SE cannot, it shown "cannot find the user name". I try to created a few new account for test and also cannot login. But I use the Win2K Server's Administrator account can login correctly.
Could you tell me what wrong in this situation? Thanks.

Ensure that accounts and F/P sharing is

Make sure that the 98 clients have File and printer sharing installed turned-on, and that each one is sharing some files. Also create a new user account on the server that has the right to log-on interactively, then try that. Also ensure that you have basic connectivity, by pinging addresses and checking you are all on the same subnet.

Hope this helps.

I try to created the new account for test, these can login in the XP machines but still cannot login in the 98 machines!

1st your physical connection cabling etc.
2nd is your configuration like domain in your workstation should be thesame w/ your server, print and file sharing in your network.
3nd your login name should be registered in your server.

i hope this would be of help.
