I have a windows 2000 Server in a domain set as the PDC with active directory, with all windows 2000 pro workstations. All machines have been updated to the latest service packs (SP3) etc... I have set several different printers up and shared them out but I can't connect to any of them. I keep getting "access denied" errors.
Things I have tried so far:
1. Logged into the machine with the printer as the domain administrator. Shared the printer. Logged into another machine as the domain administrator and tried to map to the printer.
result: message box "Could not connect to printer. Access denied"
2. Enabled the local guest account, and the domain guest account.
Result: the same as above.
3. Tried mapping to one of the hidden shares on the machine (ie: \\machine name\C$) as the domain administrator.
Result: message box "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"
I have researched the rights and every thing looks to be in order. When I try to add a printer to a machine I can find it in my active directory listing so I know it has been published.
Thanks in advance.
I have also searched this and other sites for things to try, still no progress. I'm at wits end with very little hair left from all the pulling. I do have a large hammer ifen you think that might help (just kidding)
