I have this new server running on W2K3 Standard ...
It's not configured to run AD but only Printer & File Sharing ...
I've joined the domain for this server.

Currently, the server is unable to authenicate domain users who try to access this server. I can add domain user in .. but i cannot get it to the server with my domain account. I think i've might missed out something. My DC is running on W2K3 SBS.

Please advice.

What's the error code and description when domain clients access the server? Try to access this server with domain administrator account, if yes, maybe the security policy cause that problem.

Have you verified the group memberships? It sounds like it hasn't joined the domain properly, causing domain accounts not to work, but the local accounts do.
I would check there, myself.
Good Luck!

Yeah, see if the member server has the proper accounts, and doesn't have one of those Unknown accounts; I'm sure you know the ones I mean.
If you see that, try unjoining and re-joining. Probably fix the issue.

just try checking if your domain user account is added in your server' "user accounts" list. In other words, you have to add domain user as a "local user" in your windows server (eg administrator, power user, ...). Hope that helps... Regards.
