XP pro, user name conflict, access is denied
Posted on 2004-04-10
I’m trying to set up sharing permissions in xp pro between my pc and laptop. I have an account “A” on the pc. I had an account “Z” on the laptop. I changed Z to A and gave them the same password. I set permissions for A. I try it out and get ‘Access is denied’.
Next I set up a new user on both named “test”, set permissions for it and everything works great.
So I go into computer management on the laptop and notice that in Users there are two categories
Name = Z Full Name = A
I think this is the problem, I see the same anomaly trying to set permissions on the laptop. The old name “Z” is listed under Select Users or Groups.
So, can this be edited?
