Share Access problems in 2K mixed mode environment when WAN link is down.
Posted on 2005-04-26
Hi all. I have a situation where I am in the middle of upgrading to 2000 Native mode. I am currently in mixed mode with Active Directory. I have two 2000 DC’s and about 4 NT DC’s all in the same domain/tree/forest but in different geographical locations. The issue I have is this: When all my WAN links are up, everything is fine, but when I lose a connection, say between one of my remote locations that have 10 XP workstations and 1 NT DC, they can’t access shares on that NT server. It shows logons are successful in the event log during the times that the wan link is down. My understanding is that all the DC’s should be able to offer logon services. They get access denied messages when trying to access these shares. Any ideas?
