2K & XP Authentication to Shared Drives & Management (WMI)
Posted on 2004-04-18
I would imagine that this would be a simple question, but hey. Anyway, when connecting across a network to another computer's resources (Windows 2K, XP), if you are not previously authenticated with a username and password. You then submit credentials that are either domain or locally authorized and then access is granted. How do I connect as a different user with different permissions once I am connected? This also raises the thought that when Managing another computer, I cannot typically connect or manage it until I access it via Network Places and submit credentials there. Occasionally, when I am attempting to Manage another computer via the MMC, it asks for credentials. I am confused about when and where I can submit as well as change my credentials when connecting. This applies to stand-alone and domain situations. Purely Active Directory authentication.
Thanks for your time. If any clarification is required please let me know.
