Unable to view Domain resources to add when setting Sharing Permissions
Posted on 2005-03-07
Trying to share a folder on a Windows XP Prof SR-2machine, which is part of a Win 2000 Server Domain, with other Domain users/groups. What I am doing is using the selecting 'Share the Folder' under the Sharing tab of the folder properties (Simple File Sharing has been disabled). Under the permissions button, Everyone is listed. Under the Security tab (I think this is the correct place to share across the network), there are several groups listed (i.e. Administrators for the local machine, CREATOR OWNER, SYSTEM and Users for the local machine). When I Press the Add button to add Domain Users or Groups, the only location listed or availble in the browse dialog is the local machine. The Domain and its various resources are not listed? I am sure that I had properly joined the domain when I logged in, since the Server shared folders are available, but searching/browsing the Active Directory for my username comes up 'no items found' after long wait.
This all used to work not to long ago, so I am really confused. Please help to I can get my network back useful again.
