I am getting "Account Not Authorized to log in from this station" from one server when trying to access another servr. It looks like a group policy setting but I can't find the one that I need. The server it is trying to access is our primary file server that everyone else can get too. The server that can not access it also can not access windows xp client machines. The servers all all running windows 2003 server standard. I can access the file server from any of my other windows 2003 servers. Thanks.

Hi
This maybe worth a look
You cannot open file shares or Group Policy snap-ins when you disable SMB signing for the Workstation or Server service on a domain controller

Let us know if it's any use - if not any clues in event logs on the server etc?

you need a windows xp/2000 GPO, then your xp client machines can have the GPO.

Debsyl99 could not have worked, if your xp client machines can't access the GPO, then you need a xp/2000 GPO to be installed.

I was getting it from one server to another server and from one server to client machines.
