File sharing with user level access
Posted on 1998-02-11
When trying to share files on a W95 computer with user level access, and adding the domain administrator, i will have a message stating that "the provider for the address book can't be found".
Most of our W95 computers on the network doesn't have this problem, only a few of them, and i can't figure out why.
The account "Domain Administrator" is the default account on the english version, but on the swedish version the name is spelled in a swedish way, therefore i have to remove it first and then add the name from the domain account address list. It's when it all goes wrong. But on some other computers, running the english version, i have the same problem.
I have reinstalled the OS on one of them and then it all works fine. But i'm looking for an easier way out of this problem. I have also tried the "a"-version with no success, reinstalled the network... and so on, nothing have helped so far.
My network is an MS Windows Network with one PDC and one BDC and TCP/IP as transport protocol on the same subnet. I beleave that all my computers is configured in the same way, still something differs.
I hope that someone can give me an explanation which i haven't found elsewhere.
