ARCserver 2000 with EC=1722 error massage

When I connect ARCserve manager(ARCserve 2000) from my workstation to another server(ARCserve 2000), I’ve got this error massage “Server servername failed to authenticate the user username (EC=1722)”.
After I’ve click OK, the Security windows dialog box appears.
“Security for \\servername\ARCserve$”

I’ve search in CA support web site; there is only one record but difference error massage.
I’m using ARCserve 2000 Advanced Edition version 7 (build 1100) (SP4)
Any ideas?

Whats happening is a security issue,obviously.  Your system has an incorrect account id defined that is failing verification on the other server or the accessing system has not established authorization.  Here is a link that helps outline these problems.  Double check all your access ids from peer-to-peer and system configurations for shared connectivity.

Thank for yours comment PRATIGAN.
I can map to the shared drive from Windows NT Explorer but when I am try to access from ARCserve 2000 then I have got authorization problem.
When you map to the shared drive you are mapping from a pc that has your id or security established, from Windows NT, however accessing from a server, the authority is different and is not established as a user security but more like a domain authority.  Double check the server security configuration.  I feel you'll find that the security is restricted because a username is not supplied.  I have more info on this at work.  Double check the server security... I'll followup tomorrow from work.

Also, check the rname for the server under my computer. RNNAME is registered node name and the value it should point your server name. It is is pointing to a different name then change the value and this will require a reboot to take effect...Or i would suggest you to delete RNNAME & reboot the server. Right click my computer/ properties/ advanced / environment variables / user variables .
