I am having trouble accessing the shares on a Windows Server 2003 system after I made it a domain controller and immediately removed its domain controller role (This was a mistake; it is currently set for a file server only).  I have checked that the computers are all on the same network, there is no firewall and i tried adding the computer user to the server.  The other computers can see the server when I search for it specifically, but I cannot open it or map any of the shares. I was able to see the server before and view the shares after providing a username and password, but only before I made it a domain controller and removed it. Help me please!
